75 miles west of Madrid, Daniel Landi & Fernando García have been scouring the weathered hills of the Sierra de Gredos for legendary parcels of old-vine garnacha. Earning the trust & respect of old timey farmers & local vignerons, they've been on a quest to rediscover an ancient Spain that had been all but forgotten, left in a state of neglect for decades.
"Talking to old guys in bars," Daniel reminisced in a New York Times article from May of this year, recounting he and Fernando's search for the fabled parcels. "I found when you drink beer, you find good vineyards."
10 years later the two friends are producing some of Spain's most finessed & nuanced garnacha under the label Comando G. La Bruja de Rozas is floral, chalky & mineral - a world away from the boozy, overripe wines that had defined the region for years.
In addition to the collaborative effort, we're opening Daniel Landi's Las Uvas de la Ira, a vivacious & elegant red marked by savory notes & fine tannin.
