Wines are like armchairs. You take them for granted after a while and forget how much you love them. Then occasionally you sit down, taste, and remember why you bought them in the first place.
So it is with our wines from Bodega Esteban Martin. They've become part of the furniture but we'd be a bit lost without them. It's probably fair to say they are the best value wines we sell.
Bodega Esteban Martin is a large, modern winery in the heart of Cariñena, a relatively flat, pretty hot wine region in the central north east quarter of Spain, about one quarter the size of Rioja to the north.
The vines here grow on dry, stony soils at around 500 metres above sea level in view of the Iberian mountains.
The area is probably best known for its great value reds made mainly from Garnacha and increasingly for crisp, fruity dry whites, and that is exactly what we have focused on here. Our Caprichos wines are exclusive to Las Bodegas.
