Stephen is back, this time with amazing vinous discoveries from Northern Spain.

From Aragon, we have 1 of only 20 wineries that have received the prestigious "Denomination de Pago", Bodegas Ayles. In the 1980s, the Ramon Reula family reunited various properties to resurrect Finca Ayles, which dates back to the Christian Reconquest led by Alfonso I in 1120AD. Alfonso II granted the land to Cisterican monks, and wine production flourished for the next 5 centuries! Today they are producing unique and outstanding wine, showcased by their 2020 Bodegas Pago Ayles Cuesta Del Herrero attaining “Best in Show” at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2021.

Bodegas Edetaria is located in the rolling hills of Terra Alta, nestled between Aragon and Priorat. Again they are steeped in history, with the name coming from “Via Edetana”, a former Roman road that ran between Torotosa and Zaragoza. detària produces authentic wines from only produces wine from its own 60ha of estate vineyards thus controlling all levels of production. A significant part of these vineyards is over 60 years old, and the rest are between 25 and 40 years old. The focus is on indigenous grapes, searching the purest soil expression, and restoring old vines value thanks to organic winemaking.
