Terroir al Limit has started in 2001 as a small-scale project, realisation of a dream shared by two friends: Eben Sadie from South Africa and Dominik Huber from Germany. In the 16 years that have passed since, it has evolved into the most inspirational and exciting winemaking venture in this part of Spain.

While Eben decided to return to his native Sputh Africa, Dominik Huber continues his exploration of Priorat, the region with fascinating history, simple yet flavoursome food and wines which are among the...

Dating back to the last decades of the 19th century, this historic estate in Dão is undergoing a restoration since 2009. It is when it was bought by Ricardo Cabral, who teamed up with one of the most skilled winemakers in the region – Paulo Nunes. Together they farm and make wine from nearly 100 hectares of vines, of which 45 are in the premium high-altitude sub region at the Foothills of Serra de Estela mountains. Steady breeze and significant difference between day and night temperatures, enable much lon...

This is a personal project of one of Portugal’s most experienced and creative winemakers. Luis Seabra has been making wine in Douro for years and his knowledge and understanding of the region is second to none! Working with old vine parcels from the high-altitude a

reas of the Valley, he is exploring the potential of the indigenous grapes, grown on various types of soil, in a truly unconventional way. Balance, freshness, drinkability and finesse remain at the core of his approach. Apart from the wines in Do...

Possibly one of the biggest treasures of the wine world, which (in truly Portuguese manner) has been kept in depths of a timeless adega (cellar) for many decades of the 20th century! Although there is only about 25 hectares of it left, Ramisco de Colares remains as the only vinifera vine which has never been grafted. The wines it produces are austere when young, but after patient cellaring reveal complex spectrum of aromas and flavours, while retaining their vibrant acidity over many decades. The whites ma...

When asked what wines he likes to drink himself Gernot Collmann replied: “I don't care much about grape variety: Riesling, Chardonnay or Pinot Noir are only as interesting as the place they come from (…)” When tasting through the range of his exquisite, mouth-watering Rieslings from around Einkirch in Middle Mosel, one can really understand what does he mean by that… Pure and focused, site and vintage expressive, Gernot’s wines represent a modern, multidimensional face of a German Riesling, which is create...

While some of us may be familiar with the range of red wines by Pablo Calatayud of Celller de Roure, now it’s the time to taste the white from this most inspiring Valencian producer!

A blend of an enigmatic local variety called Verdil (which is on the verge of extinction,) with Pedro Ximenez, Macabeo and Chardonnay; whole cluster pressed, fermented and aged for 6 months in 17th century, underground clay amphoraes, which remain at the heart of this fascinating winemaking project. “Cullerot” (meaning tadpole)...

Our fascination with the saline-fresh, Andalusian whites continues!

From Blanco brothers who are behind the most edge cutting sherry project in San Lucar de Barrameda, comes this unfortified white wine, made from the old clones of Palomino, grown in the pagos of Hornillos, Callejuela (San Lucar) Anina and Macharnudo (Jerez). Vinified without the influence of flor and bottled young; dry, with a hint of the signature chalky minerality, subtle notes of honey, thyme and a gentle tang of the ripe Palomino fruit.

Ribeira Sacra is regarded as the most spectacular, yet still largely unexplored DO in the North-Eastern Spain. Just as the neighbouring Bierzo and Valdeorras, the recognition this area received in recent years, was only possible thanks to the determination and courage of a handful of young winemakers. Among them Pedro Rodriguez of Guimaro stands out with the range of his unique, divinely scented wines. They combine the intensity of old vine Godello and Mencia fruit, with the extraordinary freshness and fin...
