Daniel Ramos & Fabio Bartolomei 

Hi Everyone,

We hope you all had a nice holiday weekend. To help shake off those Tuesday blues, we are drinking some perfect end of summer/early fall wines from the Gredos mountains west of Madrid.

Daniel Ramos and Fabio Bartolomei make wines separately under their own names, but they share the same cellar space, the old co-op winery in the center of the sleepy town of El Tiemblo, and the same philosophy of hands off winemaking and natural farming, each working from different plots of old vines at high elevations in the surrounding mountains. Daniel is a Garnacha savant and we're in love with all of Fabio's skin contact whites. You can read more about Daniel HERE and Fabio HERE. Here's today's lineup:

  • Airen, Vinos Ambiz 2018 $27 Vinos Ambiz is Fabio's label. This is 100% Airen from 40 year old organic, untilled bush vines at 650m in Morata de Tajuña, macerated on the skins for 4 days and aged all in steel until February when it gets bottled unflitered with no sulfur added. Soft and bright with stone fruit and citrus and some savory wild herbs in the mix. 
  • Garnacha "Kapi" Amphora, Daniel Ramos 2018 $26 Old goblet trained Garnacha from north facing vineyards planted on black schist just outside of El Tiemblo, de-stemmed and left on the skins in amphora for 9 months, then skins get removed and it stays for another 3 months, then bottled unfiltered with just a touch of sulfur. Full bodied and powerful with roasted dark red fruit and spice, but balanced by the chiseled minerality and high altitude freshness.
Get both for $45 and save 15%!

All Natural Fall Favorites

by Damien Graef October 08, 2021 4 min read

This month's Dozen features some lesser known native grapes (and a few classics) coming from roads less travelled in France, Italy and Spain, all from producers working naturally. There are some old favorites that we are happy to have back and some new bottles that we are very excited about, all in a very fall friendly, this-wine-feels-like-my-favorite-hoody kind of mood.

We look forward to these wines every year! For those who aren't familiar, Joan Ramon Escoda and his wife Carmen Sanahuja started working Carmen's family's land in Conca de Barbera, right at the foot of Montblanc, west of Barcelona, in the late 90's...
