Rioja – Spain
Bodega Vinicola Real produce hand crafted wines on land which was once inhabited by 200 monks in the 10th century, the disappeared Monastery of San Martín de Albelda in northern Spain. The vines are treated without the use of systemic products, organically fertilised, choosing a harvest with low yields where only the best grapes are selected and at the optimum moment of maturation. Bodegas Vinicola Real – Cueva Del Monge Tempranillo 16′ exudes inviting scents of vanilla, raspberry, plum and a herbaceous undertone on the nose. In the mouth you will experience more raspberry and stewed plum which combines well with balanced spices and tannin.

In the monthly wine subscription, you receive a monthly delivery of wines curated by our sommeliers, based on the type preference you select (red wine, white wine or both). This helps subscribers to discover new styles and varieties, which you wouldn’t normally come across or buy. Wine club members pay a selected amount into their wine club account every month. We don’t deliver any wine to them until they place an order for the specific wines they chose using their account balance. In short, the subscription product is for wine drinkers wanting to discover new wines and are happy for us to chose for them where the wine club is for those who know what they like and want to have control over which wines they receive. Both monthly subscriber and wine club members receive discounted prices on all orders.
We endeavour to source wines from small family-operated vineyards, who are either certified organic, bio-dynamic, or working towards this. All certified organic wines will be labelled as such, in our online store. Currently, 85% of the wines we sell are certified organic so there plenty to choose from. If you head to the menu on the website select Wine Method / Organic Wine and that will show you all the wine in our shop which is certified organic.
