General information

Germán R. Blanco, the artisan who puts landscape in a bottle

Buy this exceptional red createdby a lover of artisanal techniques and natural wines. A return to the originsof winemaking.

It was quite achallenge for Germán, a lover of Atlantic wines, to producea fresh-tastingwine in an area like Rioja Baja with a Mediterranean climate. To do so he revivedan old Riojan tradition of including a considerable proportion of white grapes in the blend.La Bicicleta Voladora 2017is made from Tempranillo with 10% of white Viura grapes. This delicious artisanal wine has been aged in an absolutely oddway that also goes back to past practices: 6 months in concrete tanks, amphoras and egg-shaped Flextank wine tanks. It is lively, fruity, supple and easy to drink.
