Dig the new breed from Ribera del Duero...

As part of our painstaking approach to creating an more interesting and relevant range of Spanish wines, we are delighted to be working with this wonderful producer in Ribera del Duero. Founded in 1998, Bodega Convento San Francisco is a young-spirited producer of superb wines full of energy and vitality, true to the terroir of this famous region. The winery itself is located within a renovated Franciscan convent dating back to 1265, thus the name.

The wines are made from 100% Tempranillo grapes, from vines between 25 and 100+ years old, grown on soils of sand, clay and limestone on the sweeping slopes of the D.O. The harvest is entirely manual with a meticulous double bunch selection followed by single berry selection. Zonal differentiation of the fruit is also a key part of creating complexity and finesse in the wines. These wines are set to become modern classics and we welcome César Pitarch Rodríduez and his team to the fold with open arms.
