Oveja Negra was the first winery to dare to explore the innovative blending of grape varieties from a single vineyard in the Maule Valley. They have created unique wines with an identity of origin, from a place with special characteristics that make it a different proposition. For example the blend of sauvignon blanc with Carmenere which is a red variety to produce a special white wine! Oveja Negra wines are prepared with grapes grown and harvested by hand in their San Rafael vineyard, which is located in the heart of the Maule Valley. The use of sustainable grape-production practices, together with up-to-date wine-making techniques, results in fruity wines with a unique hallmark. Please note the new label design,

Not all vineyards are the same. Some of them, with unique characteristics, are inhabited by mysterious creatures. Not always, and not often willing to be seen. They spread their magic and aromas granting the soil all the requirements for a truly singular Wine. These sneaky and funny creatures inhabit the vineyards and give them aroma and taste. This gave rise to the Vineyard Spirit range of Organic wines of which are excited to present two classical Spanish varieties Tempranillo and Macabeo to allow you to discover the pure taste of Spain.
Also from Spain, we introduce two more additions to the Tarongino range, Organic Grapefruit, and Blood Orange. These wines are from Valencia, the world’s best-known region for the quality of its citrus fruits from orchards are located in Sagunto (Valencia), in the region of Camp de Mourvedre, a renowned citrus area.
Another addition to the Dourthe range, Promesse de Dourthe. It is the fruit of a close-knit partnership between their winemakers and partner growers in Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux, who work together to identify premium plots of organically-grown vines capable of producing grapes of the finest quality. We are sure you will enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Bodega Son Mayol is a brand new project initiated in partnership with Patrick Léon, a legendary winemaker who has been Technical Director for Baron Philippe de Rothschild for twenty years, overseeing the winemaking facilities of the group such as Châteaux Mouton Rothschild, Opus One and Almaviva and thereafter consultant for many well- known wineries all over the world.
In search of the perfect wine, they discovered Mallorca Island. He planned and carried out the grape planting, the building of the wine cellar, the wine aging, and the staff training. Most of what Bodega Son Mayol is today with its top-class wines is thanks to Patrick’s great knowledge, tireless dedication, and deep love of winemaking. The first vines were planted in 2006 and the first experimental vintage was in 2014 and we are now proud to introduce a limited allocation of the 2017 vintage. In addition, we have a special offer on Mouton Rothschild in case you are interested to compare! and a special Baron Arques also from the same stable.

A wine that is suave, round, and fruit-forward. The "Cuvee 23" is produced by Thierry Laborie, 23 is particularly significant for the Bouey family, as it keeps reappearing in the birth dates of their family, the two sons, and the parents.

Ca’ dei Frati was founded in 1939 when patriarch Felice Dal Cero settled in Sirmione (Brescia province) on the Lombardy region side of the Lugana appellation. It’s called Ca’ dei Frati or “friar house,” because it was once owned by monks who grew grapes there. It has been family-owned and runs for three generations. Over the years, the family repeatedly invested in new vineyards. Today, all their wines are made from estate-grown fruit and now are one of our most successful labels in Japan.
Capo Zafferano is a well-known promontory, with a magnificent view over a turquoise-water gulf and a centuries-old white lighthouse looking over southern Italy: so characteristic that we wanted it to represent their selection of Puglia wines. The Premium line was thought to represent the “golden selection”, the selection of the ripest grapes. Through the popular "Appassimento", a method used to dehydrate the grapes to reach a higher sugar level and alcohol content. This process allows the concentration of the aromas and enhances the complexity of the wine. Withering is obtained by cutting the grape shot but leaving the grapes on vines. Grapes are then pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a long period to extract flavors. Subsequently, the wine is left in oak for a few months.
From Sicily, we introduce a new wine, Prato Berra. The vineyards for this wine had their origins four generations ago with the Berra family planting grapes on their sun-drenched meadows running down to the Mediterranean Sea. Viticulturist Giuseppe Berra knew by leaving grapes on the vine would harness the warmth of the sun and produce a process of “parziale appassimento” by naturally drying the grapes. The strength, intensity, and character of the grower are reflected in this wine and the soil of Pratoberra.
From the Navigator, we focus on their highly-rated Bourbon whisky finished in Navigator red wine barrels.
From Vallformosa we have an allocation of their top award-winning wines, each one is individually numbered with its unique label design. In addition we have two more wines from the Masia Freye wine including te Syrah-Tempranillo which just won gold in the Sakura wine competition.
