Airén '20

Fabio Bartolomei was born in Scotland to Italian immigrant parents. He grew up there and studied accounting and finance. In 2001, he decided to move to Spain and started making wine West of Madrid. On the side, Fabio had been working as a translator which was his day job for almost 20 years. It was only in 2019 when he became a full-time winemaker. That happened as a result of having been buried in entrepreneurial tasks connected to his business that had been growing big time.

Fabio started to work out of caves and garages in the area of Villarejo and the neighbouring villages. It was only recently when he moved into a spectacular building of an old coop that he’s now slowly renovating.
This guy doesn’t have former experience or a degree in winemaking – for some time he didn’t even realize it was natural wine he’d been producing!! He just knew he did not want to use any pesticides or additives.

The first type of grape he worked with was the indigenous Airen. When he became independent from his original partner, he started experimenting with other grape varieties and winemaking styles.

His wines are often mistaken for fruit juices given their charming look, very hazy and orange in color. His wines are probably the funkiest in our portfolio, the flavours varies from vintage to vintage, the taste can go from super peachy and aromatic wines to nutty and yeasty. Every bottle is an amazing experience and changes over time, the wine is literally alive.

Description: This beautiful orange is made from the Airén grape variety. It stems from 40 year-old vines, ensuring its richness and complexity in flavour. Stony, bit earthy with delicious aromas of walnut and quince. There is a lovely oxidative note like you would find in wines from the Jura region.

Shake the bottle before serving so that the last glass will taste like the first!
