  • Cueva de Contador is a 100% Tempranillo wine from seven parcels of limestone-clay soil located between San Vicente and Ábalos. The wines spend 18 months in new French oak barrels. A powerful, spicy, balsamic, complex wine with a truly great aromatic structure. This wine deserves to be laid down for a number of years.

    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.
