Known for its wines in classical times, Valdeorras (the sub region) has made huge strides in recovering its native grapes – one of which is Mencía – in the last thirty years and in making distinctive varietal wines from them. Valdeorras DO is located in north western Spain and this 100% Mencia shows a great blend of red berries, currants and fig jam. Combined with subtle tannin and peppery undertones this make for a supremely high quality wine. Camino de Cabras are Marina and Santiago who create the best Galician wines with the best grapes that their Atlantic corner gives them (using Rías Baixas and Valdeorras grapes). Savage Vines also sell their Albariño made from vines planted in Condado do Tea and Val do Salnés. Production limited to less than 50,000 bottles per annum (which is relatively small for a Spanish winery). Pair with: A cheese, charcuterie and fruit platter.
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.
