Francesc Ricart| Penedés
Fantastic quality Cava made by Vintae
This range of Cava is made by the excellent Vintae who also produce our Camino del Palacio Real Rioja range. In this instance the grapes are sources in Penedés from vineyards 250m above sea level. The Cava Brut spends 14 months in bottle after fermentation is completed giving a wine that is fresh but also carries some autolytic character. The Brut Reserve spends 24 months in bottle to give a more complex, rich and round Cava that for the quality is exceptional value for money.

The history of Osborne dates back to the end of the 18th century, when a young merchant called Thomas Osborne Mann arrived in Cádiz to commercialize the wines of the area. He soon set up business in Puerto de Santa María, the town where he founded his own winery which, more than 200 years later, would become the major business group that now enjoys international fame and recognition.
Today it is still a family owned business with interests throughout Spain and a new energy to improve quality. In particular Fino Quinta is a high quality Fino brand that rightly has a reputation as one of the best Finos.

Martinez Lacuesta are one of the oldest registered brands in Rioja, pre-dating the creation of the Rioja designation itself. The wines are predominantly made from Tempranillo grown high in Rioja Alta to the West of Haro, with smatterings of Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha. The exception is the Campeador range which was created in 1917 to allow Martinez Lacuesta to expand their reach. Today these wines are made up of equal portions of Tempranillo from Rioja Alta and Garnacha from Rioja Baja.
Over the last 20 years significant investment has been made to allow Martinez Lacuesta to own far more of their vineyards and a new winery and cellar was opened in 2015.Reflecting this more modern approach a selection of 'modern style' Riojas have been produced in limited quantities for those who prefer French oak over American.
