Who we are
The winery, founded in 2006 after many “dreams”, born with a very clear idea: be original, be within the highest quality scales and also handle balanced prices for all to enjoy wine.
After a long career, (Payment Carraovejas, Baron de Ley, Jacques and François Lurton, consulting to several wineries etc.) Ramiro Carbajo, along with Florentino Ferrín, a self-taught wine enthusiast who lives only for himself, decided to make “the wine”, which all have in our heads, no conditions, no bosses, no money, no entelechies…
The dream comes true and 12,000 bottles of a single wine, (Sofros) from five and a half hectares of old vineyard are produced and aged in new French oak barrels that are changed every year.
To get a great wine, we need three vectors involved: land, climate and man’s passion. The winery is not improvised, it takes experience to enrich and time. You need to think, to reflect the path to take, be clear about the production model, be strict with the vineyard, (located in the most suitable terrain) well maintained, adult to obtain the best grapes. A clear idea, know what you want.
Earth, climate and passion…
