Maisulan Rioja Alavesa 2017

Luis and Eva (husband and wife team) farm 28 Has (70 acres) in the mountains around El Villar, a tiny medieval town of 370 people. Their vineyards have been in each of their families' for four generations. They aim to make wine that fully expresses the character of the place they are both from, starting in the vineyards they know so well. Eva and Luis have a deep respect for their family vineyards and cultivate them following biodynamic practices. Environmentally friendly, organic products are paired with techniques such as using the crushed vine shoots as mulch and planting wildflowers to attract pollinators. The vineyards are all dry farmed and all the grapes are hand harvested biodynamically.
