Our Rare Old Vintage selections are made on the basis of high quality and consistency after tastings and careful condition checks. They are normally from private collections and may have been larger production wines when they were first released, but due to the scarcity of significantly aged wines in good condition–especially in quantities more than a bottle here or there–they have become rarities. These wines offer the silky complexity and chills wine collectors hope for when unearthing treasures from the past. Join us on this delicious adventure, in which we curate the best of old vintage Spanish wines, explain their history and make them available to you.

The main reason we seek out these wines is simple: for the sheer pleasure of enjoying them and their silky smooth complexity. But beyond that to give fellow lovers of mature wines the opportunity to enjoy them too. We also strongly feel that these glories of Spanish wine history deserve wider recognition for their excellence right alongside the very best wines from the top appellations from France and Italy, like Burgundy, Bordeaux and Barolo. And we might add they are often more moderately priced than those from such internationally acclaimed regions.

Their age alone makes these grand old bottles one of the great heritages of Spanish wine culture. They are a living legacy and window into the past. When vibrantly alive they give us insights into the tastes and preferences of the past and how perfection in wine was once conceived. The ideal of what makes a wine great evolves over time and varies across cultures, just as conceptions of beauty and ideals of greatness in the arts evolve and vary over time. And the wines evolve as well, sometimes differently than their creators may have imagined, adding to the mystery and fascination of drinking these old bottles.
