Trossos del Priorat

NEW PRODUCER

Trossos del Priorat is a small, family run winery located in the village of Gratallops, home to some of the most prominent producers of Priorat. The Llicorella soils here provide unique climatic conditions in which the Grenache and Carignan vines thrive. The soil structure formed of layers upon layers of slate, with virtually no topsoil, help with drainage, forcing the roots to grow deep into the soil to source water. Nutrients are poor, therefore the vines dedicate their reproductive cycle to the fruit rather than the vegetation, giving the grapes concentration and power.

The family farm their vineyards using organic practices, though the wines are not certified due to small quantities of grapes coming from local farmers. Trossos del Priorat’s wines convey the land of their origins; they are very expressive, showing depth and concentration. The Priorat DOQ ’90 Minuts’, a Grenach/Carignan blend, has so much to offer; complexity, body, minerality and persistent fruit, it is excellent value for money.

Tinkture

NEW  PRODUCER

Conscious of environmental impact and with strong ethical values, Tinkture is a project paved by passion and the desire to make cleaner alcohol. Tinkture Rose Gin is hand crafted in small batches. It is made with fresh rose petals from organically grown, hand picked, English roses. This Gin has beautifully fresh and fragrant rose petal flavour, warmth, depth and delicacy. Worlds apart from the confected, overly perfumed flavour that rose based products are normally associated with.

“A classic London Dry style gin, with one key purpose.. to let the Rose sing!”

Albino Rocca

NEW PRODUCER

Albino Rocca is composed of four vineyards, approximately eighteen hectares in total, all located in the historic Barbaresco DOCG. Vigna Ronchi is their oldest vineyard, planted over 50 years ago and containing vines over 70 years old; it is the most representative of the winery’s style. Their other vineyards include Ovello Vigna Loreto, Vigna Montersino, and Vigna Cotta. Though the Rocca family have been cultivating Nebbiolo in Piedmont for over a century, Albino Rocca was established in 1955. The estate is now run and managed by Albino’s granddaughters; Daniela, Monica, and Paola. They are committed to the same philosophy of their ancestors in crafting wines that “reflect superior quality that is authentically tied to our territory”.
