Attis is a family-owned winery founded in2000 by third generation wine growers. Owned by the Fariña family, father Robustiano provides years of experience to support his sons Baldomero andRobustiano, Jr. in their management of the vineyard, winery and business operations.
In order to enhance quality, in 2011 Attis inaugurated a new, modernized winery facility – and hired Jean-François Hébrard for technical advice and ecological cultivation inthe vineyards. These initiatives came into fruition with the 2012 vintage, encompassing all aspects of winemaking, spontaneous fermentation, aging on lees, and a reduction in sulfur usage.
The winery owns 12.3 acres of vineyards, with Albariño vinesranging from 5 to 40 years of age, planted on traditional trellises. The vineyards aredivided into more than 30 plots, ranging from 0. 21 to 1.2 acres in size,reaching up to 328 feet in altitude with views of the Atlantic.
The region’s maritime climate is characterized by mildtemperatures, with abundant rainfall and heavy winds during the year. The vineyardshave granite soil with sandy-clay character.
The AALTO project was founded in February 1999 in the prestigious winemaking region of Ribera del Duero (Spain).
The foundational aim of Mariano García (who had been Vega Sicilia's winemaking director for 30 years) and Javier Zaccagnini (6 years head of Ribera del Duero's Consejo Regulador) was to make a wine that shows a different personality, of high quality and being a faithful reflection of distinct locations, blending them at the end of the aging process to obtain balance and complexity.
Abadía Retuerta is a mute witness to history and a place where the land and the vine come together. The duty of our Duero Valley winery is to respect and preserve the legacy we have inherited in one of the top wine regions of Spain, our surroundings, the monastery and its wines. To return what we can to the earth, enhancing and increasing what we have so generously been given.
Our wines, made from a careful selection of the best grapes in our vineyards, are a bold commitment to terroir wines.
“EXTREME CLIMATE, COMPLEX TERROIR”
The Duero Valley is house for some of Spain top wines. In this region, winters are cold and summers baking hot, there are sharp temperature differences between day and night; sunshine is plentiful and rain is scarce, creating the ideal conditions for grape growing.
The river basin where our vines grow is the product of thousands of years of erosion, alluvium, sedimentations and changes in soil composition. This has created a very diverse terroir in this unique wine region, where the texture, the proportion of minerals and water absorbed or retained by each plot in the estate varies.
“OUR PHILOSOPHY IS BASED ON WINEMAKING BY PLOT”
Our philosophy is based on winemaking by plot. The composition of the soil of each of our 54 plots is different: clay by the riverbank, pebbles, and sand on the slopes, gravel in the lower parts of the estate, and limestone on the higher ground … Therefore, each terroir contains only one grape variety, which is carefully selected to extract the best the land has to offer to make Spain top wines.
The winery "AdegasArousa" is named for the locally renowned Ría de Arosa, in tribute to this historic, geographic zone. The area has a high-end gastronomic tradition that results in many excellent pairings for Albariño wines. The winery is located in the heartof the Salnés Valley, between the slopes of Mount Cabalos and Umia.
Thewinery was created in 1999 as social initiativeby three young entrepreneurial winegrowers with roots in the area. The Albariñovineyards have been meticulously planted resulting in a remarkable wine project.
Located in Meder (Pontevedra), in Rías Baixas, Adegas Galegas has been recognized since the beginning for a deep respect for the tradition and quality of its winemaking. The winery aspires to make the most distinguished white wines in Spain with Albariño as the principal grape.
Adegas Galegas was founded in 1995 to unify the winegrowing legacy of two regions of DO Rías Baixas: O Rosal and O Condado.
Grapes are sourced from estate vineyards in Meder and Goián to produce wines like D. Pedro de Soutomaior, considered one of the best white wines from Spain and globally.
In our 60-hectares vineyard in the Salnés Valley, in the Rías Baixas area (Galicia), we pour all our expertise, scientific knowledge and humanity into growing Albariño grape and producing authentic, charismatic, high-quality wines that aspire to become world-renowned.
Our logo is a visual poem. These six A’s embody the fearless spirit of our fellowship: Albariño, Authentic, Adega (“winery”), Atlantic Art with Amor (“love”). Six A’s, representing six Salnés Valley families with a long-standing winemaking tradition who came together at the beginning of the 21st century to run this winery as a family business, combining traditional Galician expertise with the will to adapt to an open, ever-changing world.
While traditional winemaking is the cornerstone of our company, we have taken on new business protocols to adapt to the origin and quality controls to receive the “Galicia Quality” label. We have also undergone an audit in order to become certified to ISO 9001 and 14001.
We want you come and discover us, taste our wines, be moved, and take back home with you a newfound love of Galicia and its culture. Terra de Asorei’s Albariño wines truly are a part of the Atlantic art tradition.
Tradition.Family. Friends. Devotion. Vocation. A wide range of words could describe our winery, Adegas Valmiñor, because we are a wide range of great things that lead into the same passion, our wines.
The winery was first stablished in 1997, but our how-to-do tradition is ancestral. We love the Albariño grape, but also the Treixadura, Loureiro, Caíño, Castañal, ... We love our land, O Rosal, and all that it gives to us. We respect it and take care of it because it is our legacy. It is our life.
We are a centenary cooperative, founded in 1912 with more than 250 families of grape growers who have lived in the villages of Falset and Marça for generations. We know and love every inch of this land intimately.
We are committed to our project and are aware of the difference our hard work throughout the year in the vineyards can make in terms of quality grapes. We all work our land carefully to obtain excellent grapes, which together with unusual climate and soils, help us to produce extraordinary wines.
We are part of the D.O. Montsant, located in the county of Priorat, in southern Catalonia and not far from Barcelona. It is intensely rural and wildly Mediterranean, with every inch of earth drenched in wine culture. It is a land where you can breathe in the tranquility of a tiny land, which is at the same time overtly cosmopolitan. Its inhabitants are constantly searching and looking beyond its boundaries to the world outside
Agusti Torelló Mata was born into a dynasty of tailors and musicians, but went into the world of cava at a very young age, a world that turned into his profession and his passion. Pioneering, passionate and tireless, he created in 1953 the first wine analysis laboratory in the industry, managed important wineries in the Penedès region and set up his own cava winery in 1959.
Due to his enthusiasm and vision of the viticulture industry, he soon became a reference point in the internationalization of cava. It is in this spirit that he fostered the creation of the Cava Guild, which acknowledged his work by appointing him President of Honour some years ago.
Bodegas Agustin Cubero is a winery with a strong family tradition.
Founded in the region of Godojos, near Calatayud, in 1953, the infrastructure at the time merely consisted of a network of wineries and underground passages. The wine producers lived with the wines and pampered them until they became the center of their lives.
Nowadays the company is managed by the second generation of the Agustin Cubero family, and since its creation, it has developed the knowledge, infrastructures, and technology to be competitive. However, we still believe that family tradition and a passion for quality wines is our most valuable legacy.
Bodega Akutain is a small family-owned winery producing quality classic red wines with D. O. Rioja since the late seventies. Following the old “château style”, all the wine produced comes exclusively from own-property vineyards located around the winery (maximum distance 3 km) in the municipality of Haro (Rioja Alta area of the DO Rioja).
The care and farming year after year of these same vineyards allows Bodega Akutain to produce its wines in small quantities in a careful and almost artisanal way, starting from the harvest of the grapes until they reach their maximum expression in the bottle to be distributed and enjoyed.
Bodega Akutain was founded by Juan José Peñagarikano Akutain in the mid-70s with the acquisition of the first vineyard of La Manzanera. Adjacent to this vineyard was originally a small horse stable in ruins and the bodega (winery) was built in its place. These stables were typical in Rioja: it’s where the animals working in the surrounding vines used to stay; they are in disuse after the onset of agricultural machinery.
Today (after a long international career at several companies in other sectors) Juans’s son, Jon Peñagarikano Akutain is in charge of the day-to-day operations of Bodega Akutain. He is leading the project since 2013, after watching it being born on his childhood and after witnessing and participating in the evolution of the winery from the beginning.
Bodega Akutain is proud to have all the facilities and equipment needed to carry out the whole process of production of their wines from beginning to end: starting from the vineyard and following through the ageing, the bottling and the final labeling until they can be delivered to the hands of the consumer.
Among the facilities, the beautiful cellar where the bottles are aged (made in caves undermined in the rock under the vineyards) should be highlighted, as well as the barrel room or a cozy room to receive our visitors.
Pioneers in organic winemaking
Albet i Noya, pioneers in organically farmed wines since 1978. Nobody told us that it would be easy, in fact, many believed it was impossible, but with desire, with consistency, audacity, with a touch of madness, with creativity and with respect for everything that surrounds us we got where we are today. And we’re not stopping.
5 generations of farmers
In 1903, during the phylloxera crisis, our Great great grandfather, Joan Albet i Rovirosa, arrived in the Penedès to work the vineyards at the Can Vendrell de la Codina estate, in Sant Pau d'Ordal. And here he stayed. For five generations, the Albet family, tenant farmers of Can Vendrell, have farmed, loved and watched over the vines that are now the protagonists of our wines.
But that wasn’t enough, and in the late seventies an opportunity knocked on our door and, restless as ever, we decided to embrace it. A Danish company was searching the Penedes for an organic winegrower. Nobody had ever heard of organic wines. But curiosity won us over and that's how we threw ourselves into this adventure.
In 1972, Alejandro Fernández and his wife, Esperanza, initiated the renaissance of Spain’s Ribera del Duero appellation with the area’s first modern wire-trained vineyard, their Viña Alta in Pesquera. In the mid-1980s as Tinto Pesquera was assuming its place among the most intriguing and powerful icons in the world of wine, Alejandro spied a neglected slope along the Duero River which had the appearance of being the most ideal vineyard site in the region, perhaps in all of Spain. Abandoned for years, the slope consisted of hundreds of small parcels with separate and stubborn ownership.
Three years of continuous negotiation beginning in late 1986 resulted in the first planting of just over 100 acres in 1989. Today the contiguous estate includes over 500 acres of prime Tempranillo vines. Encompassed within the historic county of the hilltop village of Haza high above the opposite bank of the Duero, the estate was christened Condado de Haza. Condado de Haza reflects the bold and brilliant winemaking style of Alejandro Fernández, unrivaled master of Spain’s Tempranillo variety. Bottled after malolactic fermentation and 15 months in American oak, it can be enjoyed early yet will reward patient cellaring.
The most exquisite La Mancha traditional building, located close to the Campo de Criptana windmills, was restored and converted into a modern bodega in 1999; the name chosen – El Vínculo – takes its name from the original parent bodega built on the banks of the Duero.
This project was conceived with the aim of making limited-production fine wines in La Mancha, a Spanish wine region par excellence. After travelling the length and breadth of the region Alejandro finally found what he was looking for: high-quality, old Tempranillo vines, perfectly adapted to local conditions. If the plants are well cared for, their yield selected and controlled, then the fine wine from La Mancha Alejandro dreamed of making could become a reality. His wines are testament to the first-rate La Mancha grapes grown in exceptional plots that give rise to unparalleled wine aromas and flavours.
In 1991 the dream of 3 families was realized by creating Bodegas Centro Españoles, the first winery "Chateau" style in Castilla-La Mancha combining the most advanced technology with the traditional arts from our land in our wine and brandy elaboration.
Our Allozo project is based on an intensive work in the vineyards by our wine growers and winemakers, to extract the essence of our different varieties and terroirs.
The elaboration and bottling of all our wines Allozo takes place in our state winery where we elaborate from young wines, Crianzas, Reservas and Grandes Reservas and limited edition wines, that will age in our 3800 oak casks, where the wine will obtain the maturity necessary to finish in our Wine, where the proper balance of the great wines is reached.
Bodegas Allozo Centro Españolas was born with the export vocation and conquer palates in the 5 continents, currently our Allozo wines are marketed in more than 36 countries around the world.
Countless awards support our Allozo wines, first in Castilla La Mancha to get gold medal at the Challenge International du Vin de Bordeaux, champions of Spain in 2006 in Ljubliana, the oldest competition in the world, as well as countless Awards that make our winery and our wines Allozo the most awarded in Castilla La Mancha.
Altanza began its story in 1998 as synonym of quality and dedicated exclusively to top Reserva wines. Since then, our goal has been to offer the best possible quality wine at a sensible price.
Altanza is a winery that emerges being distinguished for their identity, passion, know-how, and creativity producing great wines like the Collection of Spanish Artists. Our wines are made in a modern style from 100% Tempranillo. The wines are fermented using natural yeasts and then aged in entirely French oak barrels which are renewed every 5 years
Tradition is not only reflected in the beautiful main building and French gardens, but also in the variety we have preferred for all our reds, Tempranillo, and certain winemaking features, like the choice of vertical presses or the extra value added to the aging process by nine 22,000L Allier vats. Besides, three-quarters of our 7,500 casks are made of French oak.
Technology can mainly be seen in our stainless-steel tanks of several sizes, which allows for a better, more flexible “personalization”, all equipped with temperature-control jackets and surveyed by a control panel. We have our own lab and modern wine-storage facilities too.
Our estate spans 300 ha. (740 acres), 220 of which are vineyards. The estate provides sixty percent of the total amount of grapes we need; the rest follows a strict selection process.
Altavins is a small winery in the Terra Alta D. O., a wine-growing region located to the southwest of Catalonia - 200 km south of Barcelona - which embodies a thousand years of history and Mediterranean tradition. Here we produce fine wines, distinguished both by their "body and soul" and by the unique qualities of our traditional varieties of grapes.
Altavins Viticultors was founded in 2001 by Joan Bautista Arrufi and Jordi Casado, and currently limits its production to 150,000 bottles a year.
Bodegas Alto Moncayo wines are made exclusively with native Garnacha grapes from old vines (between 40 and 100 years old).

Our wineyards has a total of 70 hectáreas and in the middle of them, the winery.
ALTOLANDON philosophy is to make high quality wines, and so quality grapes. We take care everything related to grapes, from the vineyard, with organic farming , selecting the vairieties and the type of clons for each one, paying special attention to the type of soil where every vine is planted....
We choosed this particular place for our project because we looked for a special place where the climate and the soil were optimal for the vineyards. With our soil, climate and altitude we have 3 important and special things to get a special and healthy grapes.
For more than 100 years we made wines in the traditional method with excellent results, but distribution was limited to the province of Pontevedra. To bring our wines to a wider international audience, we founded the Altos de Cristimil winery in the “Rias Baixas” denomination. We use the most modern methods and winemaking techniques, which extract the maximum potential from our grapes while respecting their natural character. The partial cold maceration and combination of our different coupages, balanced in ideal proportions allows for singular fruit expression, aromatic complexity and freshness.
Our vineyards are situated in the municipality of Meaño, in the
heart of the Salnes, where they benefit from a
superior drainage system to produce high quality grapes and
FAMILY OF WINE PRODUCERS
Over a long history of making wines Altos de Cristimil has received critical acclaim, including many awards in competitions with other Albariño wines.
The vineyard of Altos de Torona is located on a hill, overlooking the River Miño and near the Atlantic Ocean. It is an illusion of childhood that has become the largest single-piece vineyard in Rías Baixas. It is situated on a single plot of 100 hectares, where the Albariño grape is mainly grown, as well as other native varieties such as Caíño, Godello or Loureira. The winemaker is Pablo Ibáñez, third-generation of winemakers in his family, master in Viticulture and member of the tasting committees of several Denominations of Origin.
The quality of the ecosystem of the Altos de Torona’s vineyard is recognized by the seal of Integrated Production and by the seal of Biodiversity, both oenological projects that contribute to the conservation of the environment.
J. M. Álvarez Nölting
In February, 2001, Juanma Álvarez Nölting, a young enologist, told his friends that he was going to start a winery and make a unique wine. Juanma believed he had the knowledge and experience to make this happen. Nobody took him seriously.
Some months later, Juanma suddenly died and it appeared his idea would die with him.
Instead, we decided to honor Juanma’s memory, as one who thought Valencia could produce the highest quality wines in Spain. In September, 2004, the first 2,200 bottles of ALVAREZ NÖLTING 2002 went to market and sold out in just a few weeks.
Álvarez y Díez was founded in 1941 and was one of the founders of the D.O. Rueda. We are mainly focused in white wines using the indigenous grape verdejo but also sauvignon blanc and viura

More than 20 years setting the standards for excellence Made in Spain
Entrepreneur Javier Ruíz de Galarreta founded ARAEX Rioja Alavesa in 1993 bringing together nine small and medium sized independent winegrowers from the Rioja Alavesa region. In just a few years, ARAEX became one of the main drivers of the production and export of the appellation.
In 2001, as the global popularity of Spanish wines expanded, along with his business prospects outside Rioja Alavesa, Javier created Spanish Fine Wines, a second company that grouped winegrowers from other respected Spanish regions, including Ribera del Duero, Rueda, Navarra, Rias Baxias, Cava and La Mancha. Now operating under the brand name ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines Javier continues to create new wine ventures characterized by quality, global projection and respect toward the regional identity and heritage of his Spanish vineyards, as well as new collaborations.
From the crafting of prestigious wines to the organisation of tasting panels, ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines‘ activities stand out for their excellence and vision. Among our latest initiatives, the current cooperation with the world renowned winemaker Michel Rolland is especially remarkable.
Javier also introduced the Spanish Fine Wines Institute to enhance education and appreciation for Spanish wines and wine culture among wine trade and consumers, lead scientific research in the wine sector and promote environmental stewardship and social responsibility in the sector.
The history of Bodegas As Laxas dates to 1975 when the family of Simon Ferro completed their inaugural harvest. As Laxas was one of the first wineries in Rías Baixas (prior to the official founding of the DO) and is a founding member of the Regulation Council of 1986.
The winery is located in the Miño River Valley, in the village of Arbo. The vineyards are over 30 years old and are planted on south-facing granite terraces between 500 and 650 feet. The exceptional micro-climate is characterized by mild temperatures with an annual average of 60ºF, very little frost and abundant rainfall. This micro-climate is ideal for ripening, characterized by a higher sugar content and lower acidity level than more northerly areas of Rías Baixas that face more variable climates.
