¿y tu de quién eres? 2016, Bodegas Gratias, Manchuela, Spain, 2016

Syzygy 

When Ana and Iván got together for a party with some oenologist friends in 2007, they decided to make some wine and put it in a barrel. The results of this first vintage were astonishing and so Bodegas Gratias was born. After the success of the first vintage, they realised they had a chance to make a difference. In a region with a declining wine industry, Ana and Iván are on a mission to protect old vineyards of Bobal and other local varieties, championing the vinous heritage of the area. These 2 renowned experts in their own rights came together and produced wine that was the first in the world to be funded through Crowdfunding.

The Wineyard & Winery

Using vines from family plots typically used to make wine for the houshold, the blend of grape varieties is chosen from vast experience of the local grape varieties hardiness to diseases and climate hazards. Traditionally several varieties are planted in the same vineyard, so they always ensured some good fruit, even during a spring frost, or humidity during summer that enhances fungal diseases.

The harvest is done by hand. Depending on the charachteristics of each, the ripeness, variety, some of the fruit is whole bunch fermentated in pvc, and the rest destemmed into stainless steel or allowed to go through carbonic maceration. Each selection is aged in stainless steel, oak or tinaja and finally blended.
