Recently we have had the pleasure and the honor to host Mr Javier Zaccagnini from top Spanish winemakers, Bodegas Aalto. Mr Zaccagnini’s partner at Aalto is Mr Mariano Garcia, one of Spain’s most influential winemakers. One of Aalto’s red wines ranked in the top ten Spanish red wines of last year. Before partnering with Mr Zaccagnini, Mr Garcia made the wines at Spanish icon producer Vega Sicilia for 30 years. He had special words of praise for our Astarte (Vermentino) and our Melqart (Cabernet/Merlot), a great compliment we humbly accept, especially since it’s coming from a top red wine producer 🙂
