Sumary of Meet the women winemakers making a name for themselves in the Spanish wine world:
- So, we thought we’d throw a spotlight on three women whose love of wine has driven them out into the vineyard and led them to produce some of the more interesting, exciting and downright drinkable wines on the market today.
- Back in Matanza she set to work tending the family´s centenarian, pre-phylloxera Tinta del Pais (tempranillo) bush vines.
- Charlotte Allen – Almaroja, DO Arribes “Spain’s wild west captured and put in a bottle.” That’s how one critic has described the wines produced by Charlotte Allen in the remote village of Fermoselle.
- “Charlie”, as her friends call her, began her career with a long stint working for a UK wine importer.
- ?It’s certainly off the beaten track – “A Year in Provence meets The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” according to Charlie.
- Using largely manual processes, Charlie creates unique wines bursting with character.
- Julia Casado – La del Terreno, DO BullasSAMSUNG Julia Casado doesn’t come from a wine-making family and her route into the wine world was far from conventional.
- Seduced by the practical aspects of her studies, Julia soon fell in love with winemaking and decided to switch focus and studying enology.
