RICHMOND, Va. (PRWEB) July 10, 2018
MundoVino, a member of The Winebow Group, is pleased to announce that it is the exclusive U.S. importer of Bodegas Borsao and Bodegas Alto Moncayo, two iconic Spanish producers that have established the benchmarks for Garnacha in Spain and around the world.
“We are honored to welcome these stellar wineries from the Campo de Borja region into our Spanish portfolio,” said Diego Lo Prete, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MundoVino. “Through their dedication, research, and passion for old vine Garnacha, Borsao and Alto Moncayo are producing wines with intense, soulful character that are truly reflective of the terroir. With the addition of these properties, we further MundoVino’s mission to bring the best that Spain has to offer to wine drinkers across the U.S.”
The origins of Bodegas Borsao date back to 1958 when the Cooperative of Borja was founded by a small but very passionate group of growers who farmed family-owned vineyards located in the heart of Spain’s Aragón region, the Campo de Borja Denominación de Origen (DO), also known as “The Empire of Garnacha.” In 2001, Bodegas Borsao S.A. was founded with the goal of taking a more modern approach to managing the winery, and has since grown to encompass 5,700 acres of vines farmed by 375 members, all dedicated to high quality fruit. The winery recently invested in a new production facility as part of its ongoing efforts to produce the best, most authentic wines possible.
Alto Moncayo was founded in 2002 with the mission of becoming a world-class reference for the highest quality Garnacha wines from native clones. The grapes come from more than 250 acres of hillside Garnacha vines planted between 1910 and 1967, located in the foothills of the Moncayo Mountain, the winery’s namesake. These deeply-rooted vineyards climb to 2,400 feet in elevation, and the thin, permeable soils combined with the cool, dry continental climate suit these old Garnacha vines perfectly, producing intense, complex wines.
“We are looking forward to beginning our new partnership with MundoVino,” said Jose Miguel Sanmartín, CEO of Borsao and Alto Moncayo. “Our success in the U.S. marketplace has been unprecedented over the past decade, and with MundoVino’s expert knowledge of the category, enthusiastic approach to wine education, and commitment to customer service, I am confident that together we will continue to build on this success in the U.S. market.”
MundoVino imports the following wines from Bodegas Borsao: Borsao (Macabeo/Chardonnay, Rosé, and Garnacha), Tres Picos (Garnacha), Zarihs (Syrah), Bolé (Garnacha/Syrah), Monte Oton (Garnacha), Viña Borgia (Garnacha), and Berola (Garnacha/Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon).
Alto Moncayo wines include the flagship Alto Moncayo (Garnacha), Aquilon (Garnacha), and Veraton (Garnacha).
