THE WINERYThe Nuestra Señora de Remelluri Farm formerly belonged to the Toloño Monastery. It currently covers 154 hectares, 105 of which make up the vineyard.
Remelluri is one of the most important wineries in La Rioja, not for its aristocratic roots (it was only founded in 1967), rather for its successful style of
blending modern technology (stainless steel vats) with the traditional extended period in oak. Remelluri has become, over the years, a Cult Wine, and
production is tiny.
THE WINE “ Remelluri wines are made with the best grapes from our estate: fruity wines with a distinctive personality, complex and intense aromas, and a hint of minerals and
other aromas which produce a soothing effect. With elegant blended tannins, enveloped in a pleasant sensation of freshness, they are powerful and persistent wines which
demonstrate outstanding balance and a sense of fullness in mouth.”

LOCATION : San Sebastian boasts one of the best in-city beaches in Europe. It is quite unusual feeling that you can sunbathe and swim right
next to major historical buildings and churches. Surfers are in abundance here. The city is quite small and cozy, featuring many fish
restaurants, several beaches, tons of pintxos bars and a choice of designer clothes shops

“The Basque cuisine is famous within Spain and many believe it is the Basque Country where you can find the best food. Much of this fame
comes from San Sebastian and its bars and restaurants. Although tapas were invented in Andalucia they became perfected in San Sebastian
and a walk through the old town before lunch time with its many bars shows why. Each bar is bursting with pintxos (tapas) and they look
very delicate. Pintxos are generally enjoyed together with a glass of wine or a small beer, and the Spanish tradition suggests to have one
pintxo and a wine in one bar and move on to the next bar. Pintoxos can be used as a good substitute for a meal - you pay for each one you eat
so you can have as many as you want. If you want 'real' food then that is where San Sebastian can be very very good. You can find several
restaurants with the obvious Basque cuisine. In and around the harbour you can have the freshest seafood and if you don’t enjoy the simple
harbour taverns go and enjoy San Sebastian restaurants with Michelin stars if you have some money to spare.

LOCATION :Valladolid is a historic city in north-central Spain, upon the Pisuerga River and within three wine-making regions: Ribera
del Duero, Rueda and Cigales . It is the capital of the province of Valladolid and of Castile and Leon. The capital of Castile-León preserves
in its old quarter, a heritage of aristocratic houses and religious buildings. The heart of the old city is the 16th-century Plaza Mayor, presided
over by a statue of Count Ansúrez. The city preserves houses where great historical characters once lived, like the Casa de Cervantes, where
the author of Don Quijote lived with his family and Christopher Columbus House-Museum, where the navigator spend the last years of his
life. Nowadays the palace exhibits various pieces and documents related to the discovery of America.


THE WINES : Ribera del Duero is one of several recognised wine-producing regions to be found along the course of the Duero river.The
region is characterised by a largely flat, rocky terrain and is centred on the town of Aranda de Duero, although the most famous vineyards
surround Peñafiel and Roa de Duero Ribera del Duero is home to the world-famous and highly-prized Vega Sicilia and Tinto Pesquera
wines and is dedicated almost entirely to the production of red wine from the Tempranillo grape.

Rueda is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) for wines located in the Community of Castile and Leon. It is known primarily for its
quality white wines based on the verdejo grape.. The grape originated in North Africa, and was spread to Rueda in about the 11th Century,
possibly by Mozarabs . Verdejo was generally used to make a strongly oxidized, Sherry-like wine. In the 1970s the winemaking company
Marqués de Riscal began to develop a fresher style of white wine based on Verdejo with the help of French oenologist Émile Peynaud . In
1980 white wines from the Rueda region were recognized by a Denominación de Origen (DO). Wines labeled Rueda must contain 50%
Verdejo; the remainder is typically Sauvignon blanc or Macabeo. Wines designated "Rueda Verdejo" must contain 85% Verdejo, and are
often 100% Verdejo. The Verdejo grapes are generally harvested at night. This means that the grapes enter the cellar at the lower night-time
temperature of between 10-15 C instead of the daytime temperature which in September can reach as high as 28 or 30 C. Lower temperatures
means less oxidation, or browning of the juice. Verdejo wines are aromatic, often soft and full-bodied.

Cigales is a Spanish Denominación de Origen (DO) for wines located to the north of Valladolid along both banks of the River Pisuerga Like
other DOs in the region, Cigales supplied Valladolid and other cities with wine during the Middle Ages. While Toro supplied red wine and
Rueda white wine, Cigales specialised in clarets and rosés. These wines were made until recently in underground cellars, which were often
shared by small wine-makers (bodegueros) and which were excavated to depths of over 10 m.

Albariño Albariño (al-ba-ree-nyo) is by far the finest grape variety in Rías Baixas. It accounts for 90% of all plantings. There is no dispute in terms of the quality and
unique flavor profile Albariño offers in its wines. It has been likened to a Riesling for its minerality and bracing acidity; to a Viognier, because of its fleshiness and
peach/apricot character; and to a Pinot Gris for its floral bouquet. A small, green, thick-skinned variety the grape is ideal in resisting fungal disease in the particularly damp
climate of Rías Baixas. Albariño is a low yielding variety, and expensive to cultivate. It is also one of the few Spanish white grape varieties produced as a varietal wine on its
own and designated on labels
Treixadura Galician name for the native Portuguese grape variety Trajadura grown in Rías Baixas. Treixadura is an intensely scented delicate variety, vinified and
treated in much the same way as Albariño. However, it needs to be picked early to retain acidity. Especially grown in the Condado do Tea sub-zone, Treixadura
is most often blended with Albariño and sometimes with Loureiro.
Loureiro A high-quality Galician white grape variety with high acidity grown in Rías Baixas as well as in Vinho Verde in Portugal. An aromatic laurel- scented variety, it is
often blended with Treixadura and sometimes Albariño but can also be found as an aromatic varietal wine on its own. Blended or as a varietal, the finished wine always
has a rich, soft, peachy fruit character. There is also a red Loureiro, but it is very rare.
