The only organic wine producers in all of Extremadura (the dramatically beautiful region bordering Portugal, in western Spain). The vineyard, located on the banks of the Guadiana River, has a huge amount of biodiversity, which the guys say makes human intervention almost unnecessary. The region is hot and dry, so they harvest at night to maintain freshness and low ABV. This is their ancestral method bubbly (technically a pet’nat) of two local white grapes and some Cab, the red skins of which give the wine it’s gorgeous rose-gold hue.  Clean and expressive, it tastes like spring at the seashore, all bright and salty, sunny and zesty.
