This adventure begins in the centenary Garnacha vineyards owned by the family of Raúl Acha, Vintae oenologist, in Cárdenas (La Rioja). His father has always wanted to uproot the vines, but Raúl defends their value. To substantiate his opinion, he sets out on a journey through the Ebro Valley…
Garnacha is one of the varieties whose wines have increased in popularity in recent years. This has not always been the case, however; for a long time Garnacha was relegated to a secondary role and associated with wines of lesser quality.
“En España se consiguen vinos de enorme calidad con esta variedad”
The Lost Vineyards
From Rioja to Catalonia, passing through Navarra and Aragón, there are still small old vineyards waiting to be rediscovered to offer us a unique wine.
“La importancia de la Garnacha en el valle del Ebro es indiscutible”
The result of the ‘Proyecto Garnachas de España’ is a collection of six wines that speak for themselves. Surprising wines that are full of nuances that prove that Garnacha still has much to contribute to the world of wine.
La Garnacha Olvidada de Aragón is a wine produced with grapes from old Garnacha vineyards, which is imparted in its pleasant, mature tannins. It exhibits the excellent results that a variety such as Garnacha can offer, especially when it comes from old vines.
A wine that is surprising due to its roundness and youth. After 5 months of aging in new French oak barrels, this wine expresses all the qualities of the Garnacha in this area of the Ebro Valley. A fruity, fresh and sweet tannin wine capable of satisfying the enthusiasts of this variety.
A wine produced with grapes from very low yield single vineyard located at 800 meters above sea level and grown virtually without any intervention or treatment. The result is a balanced, fresh wine with pleasant tannins, the maximum expression of the most Atlantic Garnacha from Aragón.
This is a very personal wine produced by the oenologist Raul Acha and his family with the grapes harvested in the centenary vineyard their ancestors planted over one hundred years ago and that now, as is typical of Garnacha, offers some superb wines. The whole production process of this wine was carried out by hand by the members of the Acha family.
La Garnacha de Hielo is one of the few ice wines produced in Spain. It comes from the vineyards that the Acha family has in Cárdenas and is harvested at the end of December with temperatures between five and ten degrees below zero. At this time of year, the grape has a maximum concentration and yields a sweet, very exclusive wine.
