This award-winning wine is crafted at The Wine Club’s head winemaker's own boutique winery. Award-winning winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua works with Hector Gomez to produce this oaky, rich fruit Rioja.

Having made award-winning wines at other people's cellars for 25 years, a decade ago Jean-Marc decided it was time to buy his own winery. Despite being Bordeaux born, he chose Rioja for the project and was soon the proud recipient of top points from critic Robert Parker. He brought in another top player, Hector Gomez, as resident winemaker - and together they have produced a small but impressive range of wines. They take grapes from a single grower with old vineyards planted high up to add elegance and intensity to the fruit, then age the wine in French oak. This lends a more subtle wrap of oak to the bright berry fruit. Decant the wine at least an hour before serving, and enjoy with lamb, Iberico pork or paella.

The wines are covered by a 100% money-back guarantee of satisfaction and will be delivered free within three working days.
