Franck Massard & Christophe Brunet
A venture by two friends, both esteemed sommeliers and vignerons – Christophe Brunet and Franck Massard. Intensely passionate about wines, these friends aim to produce wines that reflect the essence of the vineyard and its intrinsic yet intriguing quality. Their vineyards are located on steep terraced slopes sheltered from the scorching sun of Priorat yet sufficiently exposed to reach optimal maturity.     Massard & Brunet List

Castell d’Encus
Founded by Raul Bobet, the former winemaker of Torres Spain, Castell D’Encus is located in Pallars Jussa Pyrennees – a mountainous area at an altitude ranging from 800 to 1,000 metres. After a thorough soil study, Raul planted rootstocks and varietals that are best adapted to its natural conditions. Adopting an ancestral method of winemaking, Raul uses the site’s original rock vats that are carved from the mountain slopes for fermentation. The winery only produces 80,000 bottles of wines a year and adopts geothermics technology.     Spain List


Ferrer Bobet
Ferrer Bobet is about respect. Respect for the long traditions of vine-growing and wine-making in Priorat. The mutual respect of two friends, Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raul Bobet, both passionate about the world and culture of wine. More than anything, Ferrer Bobet wines are made to respect the terroir and reflect elegance, freshness, harmony and the complexity of Priorat.      Spain List

 Rafael Palacios
In 2004, Rafael Palacios, brother of the renowned winemaker Alvaro Palacios, began purchasing parcels of very mature vines from older producers in the area of Valdeorras. The Louro do Bolo property is unique in that its vines are planted at over 600 meter altitude, terraced slopes while the majority of the holdings in the area are much lower on or near the valley floor. The 21ha of vineyards consist of twenty six different parcels, all of them planted with the native white Godello grape, the vines between 6 and 90 years old.    Spain List

Lustau is the only house that holds cellars in all three of the Sherry triangle cities – Jerez, El Puerto and Sanl Car. Till this day, Lustau still holds the same philosophy: to pursue the best quality in its wines and to offer the market the largest range of Sherries.     Lustau List
