Award Winner

Grenaches du Monde
Silver Medal - 2016 FR

Mundus Vini
Gold Medal - 2016 DE

Javier Domeque is the No. 1 winemaker in remote, rugged Cariñena, which Decanter says “is home to some of the best value reds in Spain.” This pride-and-joy gem takes its strength from Javier’s 60-year-old Garnacha vines. While painfully low-yielding and challenging to maintain, their payoff is high: each grape is a knot of ripe, intensely concentrated flavor. Judges at the 2016 Mundus Vini show fell for its silky charms and gave it a (well deserved) gold medal. We can’t wait to hear what you think …

Look forward to enticing aromas of red berry, spice and black currant, backed by luscious, juicy mouthfuls of sun-ripe black fruit. With its warming 15% alcohol, El Bombero (‘the firefighter’ in Spanish) has the weight to match hearty beef stews and rich, meaty pastas. Or, enjoy a smooth glass on its own.
