January 11, 2020, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Since 1987, Jorge Ordóñez’s personal crusade has been to seek out and preserve Spain’s rich history of grape growing and winemaking. As Earth’s largest grape growing region, Spain has been tending vines and producing wine for several millennia. Jorge’s philosophy is centered on the belief that Spain’s potential lies in its bounty of ancient vineyard sites planted with the oldest clones of indigenous cultivars. Every aspect of his business is focused on maintaining the integrity of these unique vines and varieties. By working exclusively with artisan producers who employ traditional, authentic methods of grape growing and winemaking, Jorge represents honest wines with a sense of history, culture, and place. We look forward to sharing this trove of Spanish treasures with you and hope you will join us!

2017 Bodegas Ordonez "Nisia" Verdejo
Rueda, Spain
"Coming from 40 to 80 year old ungrafted vines of verdejo, the 2017 Nisia was barrel fermented and spent 7 months on lees before bottling. It has a richer bouquet of golden apple, pineapple, and meyer lemons as well as a medium-bodied, nicely textured, mouthfilling style on the palate. It has good acidity, plenty of fruit, and a clean finish. It's rock solid" Jeb Dunnuck
Regular Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case
Sale Price $14.99 per bottle, $179.88 per case

2017 Bodegas y Vinedos Ilurce "Rio Madre" Graciano
Rioja, Spain

2017 Bodegas Ordonez "Triton" Tinta de Toro
Toro, Spain
“Made from 100% Tinta de Toro(Tempranillo) aged a year in used barrels, the 2017 Tritón comes from multiple vineyards. It's a rich, powerful wine loaded with notions of blackcurrants, dark chocolate, licorice, crushed rocks, and crushed violets. It's full-bodied, has impressive depth of fruit, sweet tannins, and a great finish. It's a rocking wine that can be drunk today or cellared for 15 years or more.”

2015 Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva
Rioja, Spain
“One of the flagship cuvées from this estate that’s produced in every vintage, the 2015 Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo and the rest Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano that spent 24 months in used French and American oak. Blackberries, currants, cigar wrapper, cedar box, and hints of vanilla all flow to a medium-bodied, concentrated, beautiful Rioja that has ripe tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. You couldn't go wrong with a case of this.”

Alvear Pedro Ximenez Solera "1927" Sherry
This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer.”
98 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“One of the world's best PX wines is Solera 1927, the pride of Alvear. Whatever solera stocks went into this bottling were well selected. Aromas of maple and fine wood turn to fig and caramel. Saturation and weight on the palate are expected, but this has some (though not a lot) acidic cut. Deep flavors of fig and Nutella finish with nuttiness and warmth.”
