  • "El Marciano" is made from 70-year-old Garnacha grown in Navarredondilla, a village located west of Madrid at a staggering elevation of 1,150m in the Sierra de Gredos mountains. Due to the high elevation of the vineyard site, the grapes were hand-harvested in October, whole-cluster crushed and fermented with wild yeasts in steel vat with 23-day maceration, raised in tank over winter, and bottled without fining, filtration, and minimal SO2. "El Marciano" is an ethereal wine with powerful acidity, red fruit, and mineral notes; a great wine to pair with roast pork. The label is a nod to the many UFO sightings in this mountainous region.
