The Champagne was introduced in Catalunya during the French occupation in Spain between the 1823 and 1827。 After the introduction of this new and unknown product, the Catalan Agricultural Institute encouraged the production of an sparkling wine following the champenoise method (also called the traditional method) of the Champagne but with local Catalan grapes, to create the “Cava”. In 1969, Cava was recognised as its own origin designation and elaboration, described as a sparkling wine “elaborated by the traditional method, of the second fermentation in the bottle, and aging in the cava”.

Johnnie To x Marqués de Tomares
A limited wine edition made for Mr. Johnnie To.
The Díaz Bayo family has been cultivating vines for four generations in the legendary village of Fuentelcesped, Ribera del Duero. They produce unique wines made from renowned Tempranillo grapes, as well as indigeneous Albillo grapes.
The tradition of the cultivation of the vineyard in Fuentelcésped dates from 1177, the time when Ribera del Duero was repopulated by Christians. Vineyards were planted in the valley of the Nava stream that is suitable for cultivation due to its sunny slopes, and its abundant loose soil and pebbles.
Hand-harvested from 300 to 500 year-old olive trees close to the vineyards and used cold-pressing traditions, this virgen extra acetic de oliva is dry, fresh, and sweet on palate with well balanced bitterness and fruit.
