Aixala Alcait 2013 Priorat Coster de l'Alzina

This 100% Carignan wine from certified organic grapes planted on decomposed granitic soils is a fantastic value. Aged in neutral oak with minimal addition of sulfur, the wine is a prime example of enjoyable but accessible Priorat wines. With a full body, bright acidity and integrated tannin, the wine is smooth and minerally textural. The bouquet is beautifully complex with flavors of dark fruit, earth, tobacco dirt, pepper and herbs de provence. Enjoy this wine with a great steak, braised lamb, or Italian sausage.

Aixala Alcait 2016 Priorat Clivelles

This Priorat wine  is from 20-year old Carignan vines planted on decomposed granite soils, from a small organic estate located in the village of Torroja del Priorat, lead by  Jordi Aixala and Sussi Alcait.

On the nose, the wine displays a pretty bouquet of dark bery, earth, violet, spice  and tobacco notes. On the palate, the wine has great minerality, grippy tannin and bright acidity. Pair this wine with lasagna, Irish stew or beef tenderloin. Caroline Coursant

Albamar 2016 Rías Baixas Albariño 69 Arrobas

This is a truly memorable Albarino and will forever be a Chambers St. favorite! Xurxo selects grapes from the old vines of several tiny vineyards, and the wine is vinified simply in stainless steel (no lees, no wood, no batonnage) for an unaffected, pure, if not perfect glass of wine. Invigorating and long, 69 Arrobas combines a sheer, salty veneer with a deep, concentrated core of apricot, orange honey, sultry white grapefruit, and tart tropical fruit. We wouldn't hesitate to pair complex flavors with this truly exquisite wine.

Alvar de Dios Hernandez 2015 El Maderal Vaguera White

Alvar de Dios Vagüera is a blend of  Verdejo, Godello, Palomino, and Albillo, coming from a small parcel of 500 vines of about 100-year-old, at about 950 meters of altitude on clay soils in El Maderal. Fermented whole-clustered with native yeast in old barrels, the wine is then aged on lies  for 12 months without filtering or clarifying. On the nose, the bouquet is fresh and vibrant with tart citrus, white peach, white flowers, almond and saline notes. On the palate, the wine is crisp with bright acidity and a delicious creaminess that reveals mid-palate.  A pretty special wine! Pair this wine with grilled fish, summer salads, cold cucumber soup  and gazpacho.  Caroline Coursant

Alvar de Dios Hernandez 2016 Arribes Camino de los Arrieros

Alvar de Dios is exploring regions and grapes of western Spain that we'd never tasted wine from before. This is very exciting! Camino de los Arrieros comes from the north end of Arribes del Duero, the savagely beautiful borderland that flanks the Duero River, where it cleaves Portugal from Spain.  The 2016 vintage of Camino de los Arrieros is  de Dios' first village wine from Villadepera, where he farms a vast mix of grape varieties on soils of red, white, and black volcanic schists. 60% Juan Garcia (otherwise known as Mouraton), with Garnacha Tintorera, Trincadeira, Rufete, Bastarda, Bruñal (and more) collide seamlessly in this bright and lifted red. Reminiscent of cool Galician reds, with taut, vibrant red and purple berry fruit, hints of pepper, and poignant minerality. Ariana Rolich

Alvar de Dios Hernandez 2016 Toro Tio Uco

A burst of flamboyant flavors, Tío Uco is an exciting young wine from an exciting young winemaker! A native of southern Toro, Alvar de Dios honed his skills working with Fernando García at Bodegas Marañones (Sierra de Gredos) shuttling back and forth to Toro to farm family vineyards and acquire others. Tío Uco comes from 25 to 40 year-old, organically farmed vines of Tinta de Toro on a variety of terroirs (clay, limestone, sand, and gravel), destemmed and raised in neutral oak barrels. Aromas are exotic, floral and spicy, with bright and juicy flavors of wild rose, plum, stewed strawberry, hibiscus, cloves, sweet leather, and bitter earth. Substantial and spicy, but light on its feet, this is an offbeat and slightly wild foil to standard-issue Tempranillos. Ariana Rolich

Artuke 2017 Rioja Red

Made of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Viura from Artuke's organically farmed family estate in the Rioja Alavesa, this wine is a great bargain. This is a traditionally-made Rioja with a freshness that most wines of the region don't have. Whole cluster fermented and raised in concrete tanks, the wine is juicy and floral with aromas of wild violets, ripe cherry, crushed red and purple berries, soft earth, and wild green herbs. Drink this wine with a slight chill and pair it with everything from pizza to paellas! Caroline Coursant

Bernabeleva 2015 Sierra de Gredos San Martin de Valdeiglesias Viña Bonita

Viña Bonita is an aptly-named Garnacha from an 80+ year-old hilltop vineyard planted on granite in San Martin de Valdeiglesias. A swirl of heady aromas -- cherry blossoms, sweet berries, and rose -- primes the palate for supple and juicy flavors of sappy strawberry, ripe raspberry and  bitter cranberry fruit, flecked with resinous Mediterranean herbs, precise minerality, lift, and length. Marc Isart of Bernabeleva was a founding member of Comando G, along with Dani Landi and Fernando García, and shares their talent for sustaining freshness, even in difficult, dry years like 2015. For fans of Bernabeleva's Camino de Navaherreros, Viña Bonita is a special treat! Ariana Rolich

Pure Garnacha from the granitic sandy soils of San Martin de Valdeiglesias in the Sierra de Gredos, where old vines and high altitudes conspire for some of the world's best Grenache wines. Spicy and floral berry aromas give way to a tart, pretty palate of crisp cranberry, spicy raspberry, ripe tomato, with the Gredos' trademark minerality, bright acid, and a tickle of young tannins.

Bodega Cauzon 2016 Cortes y Graena (Granada) Pi Noir

Ramon Saavedra makes delicious zero-added-sulphur  wines in the tiny hamlet of Cortes y Graena in the Granada province of Andalusia. This Pinot Noir is ripe and bright, but at 12%, a balanced and unique experience of the noble grape. Although harvested earlier than previous years, the 2016 is significant, with black cherries, spice, and a decent amount of grip. High altitude vineyards provide ample acidity to frame the material. This is a singular expression of Pinot Noir and worth drinking over a day or two, or aging for up to 10 years.

Ramon Saavedra farms organically and adds no sulfur whatsoever to his wines. His vineyards face north on alluvial soils at the base of the Sierra Nevada range at over 1000 meters altitude in Andalucia, resulting in impressive freshness and definition. Mozuelo is mostly Garnacha with some Garnacha Tintorera, de-stemmed and pressed after 8 days of maceration and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Grape skins, fresh flowers, and thyme on nose, with the flavors of perfectly ripe purple berries on the palate. It's silkly and generous, but as with all of the Cauzón wines, very balanced and drinkable.

Castellroig is one of the finest values in Cava, farmed organically, harvesting by hand, and even fermented with native yeasts. Marcel Sabate and his team have a remarkable understanding of their vineyards and have mapped out every minute shift in terroir on their estate; this fanatical approach to quality shows in the bottle. The focus of this cuvée is Xarlel-lo, a favorite amongst Cava grapes for its refreshing mineral qualities and notes of mountain herbs. A light-on-its-feet bubbly for everyday occasions.

Celler del Roure 2017 Valencia Cullerot Blanco

Celler de Roure is a small dynamic organic-certified estate located in the Denominación de Origen of Valencia, using indigenous grapes of the region, old traditional aging methods (stone lagars and amphorae), and native fermentation. Cullerot  (which means "tadpole") is a blend of several local grapes (Verdil, Macabeo,  Malvasía, Pedro Ximénez, and Tortosina, among others) ranging from 15-70 years old, co-planted on sandy clay loam, at 600m altitude. Whole-clustered pressed, the grapes are fermented in tank and then aged in amphorae for six months. Technically an "orange wine", this fantastic wine is full of flavors and freshness with aromas of citrus, pineapple core, green apple, white floral, earth and brioche. Textural with a hint of tannin, the wine is vibrant with good acidity and length. A delicious orange wine to enjoy by itself or with roasted chicken, jambalaya or Salade Niçoise. Caroline Coursant

Colet Navazos 2012 Penedès Extra Brut Reserva

There is no Champagne method sparkler like this one, a collaboration between Sergi Colet in Penedes and Equipo Navazos, the Andalusian dream team behind La Bota. The base wine is Chardonnay from Penedes and the dosage is manzanilla pasada from Sanlucar de Barrameda; this combination is fascinating, with flor aromas from the manzanilla accenting the earthy bass notes of the wine. Long aging on the lees before disgorgement (40+months) and a process called autolysis create umami and yeasty bread notes in Champagne method sparklers that are found in fino sherries and manzanillas with age as well. Umami, salt, citrus, and long, briny, mineral profile make this a serious sparkler to build a seafood or poultry course around. Ariana Rolich

Corisca 2015 Rías Baixas Albariño Ecologico

We are very proud to work with Corisca ("storm" in the local dialect), a certified organic Albariño made by Natalia Rodríguez and her father José María, pioneers in the region (the first in Rías Baixas to be certified organic) who work tirelessly to perfect the balance of this wine - the only one that they make. Corisca displays pure Albariño character and heightened refreshment at an everyday price. Salty, stony aromas with hints of orange oil and green herbs precede the elegant palate, full of twinkling citrus and stone fruit, bright sea spray, minerals, and a long, complex finish. An invigorating apéritif and easy pairing for poultry, fish, and vegetables. We cannot imagine a more delicious "house" Albariño! Ariana Rolich.   

Want a great wine with your fish? Corisca is one of the best wines you can buy to pair with! With great salinity, pretty texture and good acidity, the wine works beautifully with white flesh fish, such as mahi mahi, striped bass or skate, and many seafoods, from crab to scallop. Try it with ceviche and sushi and you will thank me!  Caroline Coursant

Cosmic Vinyaters 2017 Emporda Macabeu Semibrisat

Macabeu from Catalan country, just south of the French border in Spain. About half of the fruit undergoes full carbonic maceration (whole berries with no crushed skins, fermentation inside the grapes) for 10 days, and the other half is macerated for 4 days. The vines are from a 70-75 year old plot on white clay and limestone near the sea, in Serra de Montmell. I am a big fan of Macabeu, as it's a fuller bodied white grape with a lot of character, good weight and balance, and there's nothing "buttery" about it. There's a tiny bit of structure from the short maceration, but it's essentially a white wine, and one that leaves a lasting impression.

Cosmic Vinyaters 2017 Emporda Valentia Carignan Blanc

Salvador Batlle is considered the anfora master of Catalunya. Every wine he makes goes through an amphora (clay pot) at some point and they're always made with no SO2 added. Most of Batlle's vines are in Emporda, just south of the French border in the Catalan part of Spain. The rare Carignan Blanc is featured here, from a 60 year old plot on sandy granitic terroir. Most of the juice is macerated on the skins for 4 days and then fermented and aged in 220L amphora, with about 20% going into old 500L chestnut barrels. Though not an orange wine, there's definitely the impressive character and subtle earthiness of the Carignan Blanc showing. This is a pure, natural wine that evolves beautifully over hours or days.  Eben Lillie

Cosmic Vinyaters 2017 Emporda Via Fora Red

Sumoll is a local grape from Catalunya, and this wine from Salvador Batlle is one of the more technical, precise, and dare I say "serious" expressions I've ever tasted. About a quarter of the grapes undergo full carbonic maceration in a stainless steel tank, with another quarter macerated for 4 days, then pressed off the skins and fermented in amphora. The other half of the grapes are macerated and fermented in amphora for 14 days (with skins the whole time). Most of the aging is in 220L amphora, with a small amount in 500L old chestnut barrels. Relatively light bodied, but with very pure and direct dark berry fruit. There's something almost clean or crystalline about this wine, especially considering there is no SO2 added, and compared to other Sumolls I've had that are wild, fresh, and a bit more funky. This is by no means a complaint! In fact, if anything it's a recommendation, as this is a natural wine that can win over many a skeptic.   EL

D. Ventura 2016 Ribeira Sacra Peña Do Lobo

Pena do Lobo translates as "Cry of the Wolf"- a reference to a time when there were more wolves than people in this part of the world. From the Amandi subzone, grown on slate and granite, this Mencia shows juicy and tangy dark fruits, a strong mineral under-pinning, and notes of cracked black pepper. There is a always a signature violet quality to the fruit that lifts the palate irresistibly. The balance of acidity and density of fruit suggests the potential to age. cb

Daniel Ramos Zerberos 2013 Castilla y León Dair

Whole-clustered, the grapes are fermented with native yeast, and then aged in old oak for a year with no filtering or fining, and with minimal addition of sulfur. This is a rustic but vibrant Garnacha wine with red berry and cherry fruit, earthy spice, dried herbs and tobacco, and dark rose floral and wooden notes lifted by bright acidity, superb minerality and good tannins. A wine with a lot of character, drink it with a plate of jamón and dried manchego, roasted pork tenderloin, and beef brisket. As a cute note, Dair is the combination of the first two letters of each of Daniel Ramos' children first names (Daniel and Irene). They participated in some parts of the winemaking and drew the labels! Caroline Coursant

There was no filtering or fining of the wine but a little sulfur was added at bottling. The result is a wine superbly expressive with a complex bouquet of violet flowers, black cherry, dark wild berry, vegetable, earth and Mediterranean herbs notes layered with bright acidity, vibrant tannin and precise stony minerality.

Maldivinas 2015 Castilla y Leon Sierra de Gredos Combate Pink

I heartily recommend drinking more deeply pigmented rosés throughout winter (especially at holiday feasts). This is an addictive, fuschia-hued, slightly off-dry rosado of Garnacha from Maldivinas' prime vineyards in Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. Two-thirds of the fruit comes from vineyards on schist and one-third from granitic soils. The perfumed nose of hibiscus, wild flowers, and damp brown earth continues onto the wild, juicy palate of strawberry preserves, raspberry patch, and black tea. Lots of bright, tangy acidity is present to balance the rich, wild fruit and the touch of sugar that remains in the wine. An explosively delicious rosé for sipping and an inspired pairing for any cured or smoked pork products, dark poultry (like turkey or duck), Asian fare, cheeses, and fruity or chocolatey desserts. One barrel produced. Ariana Rolich

A fascinating white from José Miguel Márquez, winemaker at Marenas Viñedo y Bodega, in Andalucia. Montepilas is an indigenous grape, found only in the Montila-Moriles D.O. (Denominación de Origen). Though it very much looks and acts like an orange wine, it is in fact a direct press. The skins of Montepilas grapes get pretty dark when ripe, so all color comes naturally from the skins without maceration. Nice round orchard fruit and subtle texture reminscent of chamomile or verbena tea. No SO2 added. Eben Lillie

Diego is aptly named for its grape Diego, a local variety of La Palma in the Canary Islands, also known as Bujariego and Vijariego Blanco. From 100-year old vines planted in Fuencaliente at 800m altitude on very steep slopes of ashy volcanic soil, this wine is one of the most mineral white wines made on the Canary Island. With the 2016 Diego, Victoria Torres Pecis succeeds in combining a complex bouquet (a portion of the wine is aged in French used barrels) and gorgeous freshness. With earthy tropical and tangy citrus aromas, the wine shows mid-palate a beautiful and vibrant ashy minerality with saline, white pepper and vanilla spice undertones.

Matías i Torres 2016 La Palma Tinto Negramoll

La Palma native Victoria Torres makes this supple, minerally red wine with her family's large Roman press of Canarian pine that dates back to the 1800s. Her Negramoll vines come from vineyards in both the fertile north of La Palma island at very high altitudes (up to 1400 meters), and in the warmer, lower southern zones, which combine for an alluring, layered fruit profile. In the Canary Islands, fresh red wines are frequently consumed alongside fresh grilled fish with herbs. This is highly recommended!

Oriol Artigas 2016 Alella La Rumbera Blanco 1.5 L

This is all Pansa Blanca from three different vineyard sites. It's a perfect introduction to the grape, and a gateway to Oriol's single-vineyard expressions. The parcels are all on granitic sand, which lends a particularly salty and spicy character to the wine. Mostly de-stemmed, with 20% of the grapes left on the skins for a short period (1-2 weeks), and aging for 10 months on the lees in stainless steel. This is beautifully textured and also zippy and fresh. Though I'm no expert of Pansa Blanca, I'm convinced that one must at least try this wine to understand the characteristics and potential of the grape.  Eben Lillie

Oriol Artigas 2016 Alella 3 Porcs! 1.5L

3 Porcs is a collaboration between Oriol, Francesc Ferre from Cellar Frisach, and a mutual friend who mostly makes wine for family and friends. Pansa Blanca from Alella meets Garnacha Blanca from Terra Alta, and Parellada from Penedes. Grapes were co-fermented (whole-cluster) for 5 days, and the wine was aged for several months, during which some flor formed. It wasn't intentional, and it's not evident from tasting the wine, but nonetheless an important detail. Only in mag and from a very limited bottling, this is all we got!  Eben Lillie

Orly Lumbreras 2016 Ribeira Sacra Vertixe

Orly Lumbreras is based in the Gredos, where he makes some great minerally-driven wines. This wine is 100% Mencia from 60-year old vines planted on schist soils, at 600 meters altitude. Fermented with 30% stems in open vats, foot-trodden, the wine is then aged for 4 months in used barrels. Fresher and brighter than the prior vintage, the 2016 Vertixe displays a savory bouquet of tomato, licorice, earth with some dark raspberry, and purple berry notes. With beautiful broad minerality, good acidity and light tannin, the wine is vibrant with an energy so unique to Orly. Pair this wine with Italian sausages, braised pork, and Mexican food.

Pares Balta 2017 Penedes Calcari Xarello

This 100% Xarello wine from 45-year old vines planted on calcareous and chalky soil at 254m altitude, is a beautiful wine! Farmed organically and biodynamically, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks for 21 days and then aged on lees for four months. With a fantastic bouquet of light white flower, honey blossom, Meyer lemon, clementine and salt, the wine is deliciously fragrant but also savory and saline. On the palate, the wine is textural and dry while keeping a beautiful crisp finish. Terrific with roasted chicken, ceviche, light pasta dishes, Asian-inspired dishes, or nutty cheese.

Partida Creus 2017 Catalunya Massís de Bonastre VN (Vinel-Lo) Blanc

Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerosa are former architects, who moved from Piedmont to Barcelona many years ago, and eventually took to the countryside and began making natural wine. This is their white blend, sourced from old vineyards of Vinyater, Xarel-lo, Moscatel, Garnacha Blanca, Parellada, and Macabeu. All the fruit is co-fermented, with no added SO2, as is the unwavering practice at Partida Creus. Surely one of the least expensive (and most) "funky" whites we have at Chambers Street! Cloudy, unfiltered, with a cornucopia of fruit and a broad but mineral finish.  EL

Pedralonga 2017 Rias Baixas Albariño

From 7.5 ha of organic and biodynamically farmed vines, this Albarino is full of energy! Pedralonga means "big rock" in Gallego, which refers to the chunks of granite that protrude from the vineyard soils and create the textured, mineral core of the palate. With flavors of citrus, green apple, white flower, briny sea spray, and light herbs, the wine is delicious and bright. Pair this wine with oysters, grilled fish, or green beans casserole.

Ponce 2017 Manchuela Las Cañadas Rose

"Las Cañadas" is a blend of Bobal (90%) and Albilla (10%), planted in 1965 on clay calcarious soils.  Established in Manchuela (a D.O. (Denominación de Origen) close to Valencia) since 2005, Juan Antonio Ponce practices organic and biodynamic farming. A proponent of minimal intervention, Juan Antiono harvests by hand and uses native yeast. The grapes are directly pressed in stainless steel and aged in 600L French oak barrels for six months. A minimal amount of sulfur is added at bottling and there is no fining or filtering. The result is a wine with mineral elegance and freshness, with a beautiful creamy texture, light bouquet of orange, clementine, strawberry and stone fruit with spice undertones - Las Cañadas is delicious! Drink this vibrant lovely rosé by itself, or with grilled octopus, tuna tartare, or any bright salad. Caroline Coursant

Quinta Milú 2017 Ribera del Duero Milú

This organically farmed Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) wine is a great value! Coming from several different parcels at high altitude averaging 30-50 years old in the village of La Aguilera, planted on clay limestone soils, the grapes are whole clustered and infused rather than macerated, and then fermented and aged in wood. 2017 was a difficult vintage for Germán R. Blanco, with frost and low production, resulting in a more concentrated wine but still showing great vibrancy, good acidity and supple tannins. The wine continues to display the fresh side of Tinto Fino, with flavors of juicy dark berry and black plum, light floral, and herbal and savory undertones. Perfect for pairing with grilled meat.

Raventós I Blanc 2015 Conca del Riu Anoia de Nit Reserva Rosé 1.5 L

Raventós stepped outside of the Cava appellation in 2012 to create the Conca del Riu Anoia designation, which is committed to prioritizing the area's indigenous varieties, estate fruit, longer elevage, and biodynamic methods. The de Nit rosé was the first Conca wine and continues to sate and impress us with its lively expression of Raventós' calcareous soils, rich with marine fossils. Lighter than ever in 2015, a pale rose gold, not quite the color of pale rosé, this is an incredibly versatile sparkler that has crisp, pretty stone fruit and under-ripe raspberry fruit, but is far more mineral-driven than fruity.

Ruben Diaz 2014 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Cuesta del Tejar Garnacha

Cuesta del Tejar is 100% Garnacha from schistous slopes at 950m altitude in the town of Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos, and home to a fascinating variety of terroirs and a corresponding bounty of delicious wines. Aromas of wet, warm stone, earthy licorice, and cassis, with flavors of fresh, ripe blackberries, orange oil, sandalwood, supple, starchy tannins, and bright acidity. Well worth cellaring, but also delicious in its youth, pulsating with the primal energy of the Gredos' wild earth, sun, and air. Bravo to our friend Rubén Díaz, the undisputed master of Cebreros!

Ruben Diaz 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Fiorella Albillo Real

What a fantastic wine reminiscent of classic, non-fortified Sherry and Jura whites! 100% Albillo Real from 70-year-old vines planted on decomposed granitic sands in Cebreros in the Gredos (with a small quantity coming from older vines), Fiorel-la (a nickname for “little flor”) fermented 5 days on its skins and then aged under flor (the veil of yeast that protects the wine from oxidization) in stainless steel for over 18 months (a portion of Fiorel-la is aged in small soleras for Rubén’s vinos de tonel). The wine displays beautiful and distinct aromas, with a complex bouquet of savory, almond, salt, lemon peel, dill, dry bitter earth and olive notes. The palate is vibrant with great minerality, bright acidity, and salinity, and an amazingly long finish. Serve this wine with fish crudos, tapas and grilled fish. Caroline Coursant

Ruben Diaz 2016 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Finca La Coronilla

The 2016 Finca La Coronilla is a blend of Albillo Real and Chasselas Doré from 70-year-old vines planted side-by-side on decomposed granitic sand in the village of Cebreros in the Gredos, at 630 meters altitude. The Albillo was picked first and spent a week on the skins before being pressed, and then aged in a single used French barrel. The Chasselas was then added to the Albillo following five days of skin maceration and the wine was then aged for nine months. With great acidity, beautiful texture, light body and precise minerality, the wine is fantastic. Vibrant with an electric energy, the wine displays a delicious, complex bouquet of almond, herbal, spice, saline and earthy notes with tart tropical and pale stone fruits. Pair this wine with poultry and vegetarian fare, such as mushroom risotto and ratatouille. Caroline Coursant

A  great example of the Gredos for a great price, this Garnacha wine shows off a precise structure of smooth tannin, good acidity and bright minerality. Enjoy without moderation!

Ruben Diaz NV Castilla y León Cebreros La Sorpresa Saca No. 6 500ml

The Sorpresa is a long-aged Albillo Real, stored in a small solera started in 2004 when Ruben Diaz found a barrel of 100+ year-old Albillo in a cellar in Cebreros. This ancient Albillo is the base wine of the solera, which he refreshes regularly (though not every year) with young Albillo. Some of the barrels develop a thin layer of flor. He bottles sacas of 200 bottles at a time. Saca #6 was bottled in 2014, pulled from a barrel refreshed in 2004 and 2007. A perfect wine for customers interested in Amontillado or Palo Cortado style sherries. But note that, unlike sherry, Ruben's vinos de tonel are not fortified! Ariana Rolich

Orly Lumbreras of RuBor is always good for a musical reference! 7 Pulgadas is "seven inches" (as in the vinyl record format), made from a single parcel of Garnacha in Navarrevisca (in the Alto Alberche zone of the Sierra de Gredos), planted on sandy soils of decomposed granite at 1100m altitude. Explosive fragrance of of flowers and spice flow onto the powerful palate of ripe raspberry and tart red plum, black cherry and chewy skins. Powdery tannins, mouth-watering Gredos acidity and mineral grip ripple through this wine, which opens up for hours and shines alongside beef, lamb, or a Mexican feast. Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros SADE Albillo Real

Albillo Real is the great white grape of the Sierra de Gredos, a massive mountain range west of Madrid, where Garnacha reigns supreme. Albillo is expressive, earthy and versatile among styles of wine, from crisp whites to orange wines, to historic sweet and rancio styles. The grapes for SADE come from a single vineyard in Cebreros, picked quite ripe and given a 40-day maceration on the skins, resulting in velvety tannin, flavors of musky apricot, papaya, squash, honeycomb, salty cheese rind, and earthy mineral depth. Terrific with a grilled pork chop, roasted chicken, roasted fish with citrus, earthy root vegetables, cheeses or charcuterie. Ariana Rolich

Groove comes from a unique spot in Cebreros, the highest granitic vineyard in the village,  planted on very sandy soils a 900m to 50-year-old Grenache vines with very low yields of small grapes with thick skins, with electric tannin and acid. This wine consistently throws people off, as it is not fruit-driven.  Groove is intense and distinctly mineral- and acid-driven, with flavors of brambly and herbal wild berry fruit, brilliant acidity, and hints of herbs and coriander. Cool and pretty, even in the intense 2015 vintage. Ariana Rolich

Silice Viticultores 2015 Galicia Ribeira Sacra Finca Lobeiras

This fantastic wine is a blend of mostly Mencia, with some Merenzao, and Albarello. The grapes come from the vineyard of Finca Lobeiras in Ribeira Sacra, a very steep vineyard of 60-year old vines, planted on limestone and clay soils. 2016 was a cold vintage and Freddi Torres used whole-clustered grapes to impart complexity to the wine.  After a week of maceration, the grapes were aged in old barrels for 13 months. With a bouquet of tart dark cherry and black berry, deep rose floral, herbal and olives notes, the wine shows off the beautiful complexity of Mencia. On the palate, the bright acidity and tangy minerality accompany the light tannin to make a vibrant wine, full of energy with a complex finish. A delicious wine to pair with mint roasted lamb, pork medallion with prunes and fresh cheese. Caroline Coursant

Ulibarri Artzaiak 2016 Bizkaiko Txakolina

The Ulibarri family has a long history in the Basque country, primarily as shepherds and cheesemakers (Artzaiak is the Basque word for shepherd). They also have vineyards planted to the traditional grape of the region - Hondarrabi Zuri - and have existed as a bodega since the 18th century. Farming is certified organic (extremely rare for the area – they might be the only ones!) and the sheep play a major role in the vineyards, handling weed control and providing natural fertilizer. In an area where winemakers harvest early and often inject the wines with CO2 to make them a bit fizzy (a characteristic associated with the wines – think Vinho Verde), the Ulibarri brothers harvest at full ripeness, allow indigenous yeast fermentation, and let the wines age on the lees. There is no filtration or stabilization - this is REAL Txakoli! The 2016 is fresh and even has the slightest tickle on the tongue from the natural acidity. A fantastic thirst-quenching white from a magical place! Eben Lillie

With good acidity and a beautiful finish, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for several years. Caroline Coursant
