They mainly seek to offer honest, high quality products from all corners of Spain, although they also include a couple of good Germans, French and Mexicans.

They are always moving away from starry figures and looking for the essence of these "rescuers" of the wine of yesteryear, the one of all life, the one we keep in our memories since childhood, without artifices or gimmicks.
