  • Predicador is a blend of Tempranillo and Mazuelo grapes from parcels located around San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Ábalos and Labastida. In order to obtain the best concentration and maturity, the vines are cluster thinned to leave only one bunch per branch. Next comes a long period of cold maceration and 14-16 months' élevage in French barrique barrels. The wine has great complexity: powerful, but with very mellow tannins and great, fresh length in the mouth. A textbook example of balance!

    Superstar Spanish wine producer Benjamin Romeo began making wine in his father’s garage in 1996, ageing it in a mountain cave! He is now one of the world’s most respected vintners. His vineyards located near San Vicente, in premium Rioja terroirs sheltered by the Sierre Cantabria, range in age from 40 to 100 years. Spread over 80 small parcels, they are mostly planted with the Tempranillo grape variety. Benjamin Romeo’s wines are true masterpieces – subtle, delicate, mineral, elegant and distinguished. Quite awesome.
