White Wine

  • Adegas Valtea, Albariño, DO Rias Baixas 2021: A luscious white wine from the beautiful northwest corner of Spain, Galicia. Aromatic, lively, with a slight acidic/mineral finish

Sparkling Cava

Red Wine

  • Bodegas y Viñedos Tobelos, Crianza, DO Rioja 2016: From the heart of the Rioja region in Northern Spain. This 100% Tempranillo red wine is bright, fresh, and fruitful.
  • Convento San Francisco, Roble, DO Ribera del Duero 2019: This brilliant Tempranillo red is produced in the heart of the Duero valley in Northwest Spain. Aromatic, well-balanced, with a beautifully persistent finish.
  • Convento San Francisco, Crianza, DO Ribera del Duero 2017: This rich red is produced from 100% Old Vine Tempranillo. Structured, rich and profound.
  • R. López de Heredia, ‘Viña Tondonia’, DO Rioja 1970: One of the most iconic wines of Spain, from an estate that has been family owned and operated since the 1870s. Complex, super aromatic and vibrant red wine.
  • Ribera del Duero

A gem of a winery, housed in a 13th Century convent in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. The estate is made up of over 60 plots of ancient vines dating back to 1915. Rustic and polished all at once, this is a wine rooted in tradition and authenticity.

    • Convento San Francisco Crianza
    • Convento San Fransico Seleccion Espanol
  • Rioja

Founded in 1879 in Haro and owned and operated by the Real de Asua family ever since, the Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana (CVNE), is an icon in Rioja and a bellwether for quality and style in the region. These are two of their most sought after bottlings:


    • Cune Vina Real Reserva 1981
    • Cune Imperial Gran Reserva 1981
  • Galicia

Rias Baixas (meaning ‘low estuaries’), in Spain’s northwestern region of Galicia, is a cool and rainy Atlantic terroir perfectly suited for making high quality white wines that pair perfectly with the abundance of seafood found on its coastline. Do Ferreiro is one of the most historic and lauded producers in the region and Valtea a celebrated newcomer from the exciting sub-zone of ‘Condado de Tea’.


    • Bodegas Vilarvin ‘Valtea’ Albarino, Rias Baixas 2021
    • Albarino Do Ferreiro 2021, Rias Baixas 2021


  • Cava

Corpinnat is a new classification reserved for the highest quality of Cava producers. Growers must farm organically, all grapes must be hand-harvested and the wines must be made and aged in the heart of the Penedes region. Gramona is currently under the stewardship of its 5th generation of wine-growers and quietly churns out some of the very best Cava in the region, rivaling the finest sparkling wines of the world.
