José Antonio Garcia Unculin Bierzo 2014
Story

A fresh, vin de soif style Bierzo from various parcels of old vines around the village of Valtuille de Abajo.

José Antonio was born in Barcelona, but his mother, a native of Valtuille De Abajo and his father, a native of Corullon, are long time vineyard owners in Bierzo. José Antonio spent his formative years in Barcelona working in the restaurant trade before returning several years ago to recuperate his family's vineyard holdings in Bierzo. Working out of a small winery in Valtuille, José Antonio crafts his wines to reflect the different parcels and terroirs of the region. All work is done with minimal intervention and with the intention of focusing the development of the differentiation of the terroirs in Valtuille.

He owns 22 hectares of only old vines between 500 and 600 meters elevation. The different parcels that José Antonio is working are divided into stylistically distinct wines.
