WoodWinters Juan Carlos Sancha Rioja Online Wine Tasting Friday 18th June 2021 7PM
Spanish wine fans-don’t miss this one! Meet us on Zoom for what is going to be a truly brilliant tasting with one of the Rioja greats, Juan Carlos Sancha. He will be live from Rioja to present a selection of his wines including two of the varieties he is responsible of rescuing-Tempranillo Blanco and Maturana as well an exploration of his property and Rioja in general.
Juan Carlos Sancha, a professor of oenology at the University of La Rioja, founded his eponymous winery in Rioja Alta along the border of D.O.Ca. Rioja, in the coldest zone of this wine denomination. Along with various plots of old vine Garnacha (up to 95 years old), Juan Carlos Sancha’s winery also has vines of minority varieties such as Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Tinta and Maturana Blanca, varieties that he and his university colleague Fernando Martinez de Toda discovered, rescued from extinction, and developed. The wine-making philosophy is based on organic practices and minimal intervention in all stages of the process, the aim being to preserve the purity and clearness of their carefully selected grapes to produce personal, elegant and powerful wines.
The tasting includes an interactive zoom tasting and 100ml samples of the following wines:
Juan Carlos Sancha Ad Libitum Tempranillo Blanco 2019
Juan Carlos Sancha Ad Libitum Maturana Blanca 2019
Juan Carlos Sancha Ad Libitum Monastel de Rioja 2019
