Terroir-al-Limit (Priorat); The wines of Dominic Huber are next level. Through years of trial and error he has managed to evolve a style of Priorat that is all about finesse, purity and freshness. High altitude old vine plots, and biodynamic viticulture. They pick early, use large format oak & concrete and use whole bunch and carbonic maceration to great effect. Terroir al Limit
Exopto (Rioja Alta); The viticulture and winemaking model is that of the “vigneron” days – small plots of vines in the extremes, wild yeast fermentation in concrete or old oak vats and then aging in a way to showcase the fruit, minerality and terroir not the wood or aged flavors that people often associate with Rioja. Bodegas Exopto

Bodegas Mengoba (Bierzo); Mengobas wild rural vineyards sit a lofty 2500 feet above sea level. Old goblet vines are strewn across small isolate patches in the high country, a remarkable terroir planted with Godello and Mencia that French winemaker “Gregory Pérez was drawn to. Bodegas Mengoba
Equipo Navazos (la Bota Sherry) project was started by a group of Spanish Sherry lovers led by wine writer and Sherry guru Jesús Barquín. Bodegas in Jerez, Sanlucar and Montilla often have casks or bota of Sherry whose small volume makes it commercially unviable. Navazos bottled the sleeping treasures and in doing so have profoundly contributed to the wine culture of Spain, whilst making Sherry a must for serious wine lists. Equipo Navozos
Toro Albala (Montilla); Founded in 1844, Toro Albalá is arguably the most important producer of Pedro Ximenez in the world today, with the finest vineyard holdings in Montilla (the region for Pedro) as well as the oldest, “legendary” stocks.
