About Vins Nus

Catalonia, Spain

Vins Nus by Alfredo Arribas represent a new separate wine range, based in the north of the Priorat and Montsant regions, an alternative and complement to the rest of his production. Wines with more absences than add-ons: no sulphites added, practically any oak, less extraction, alcohol, color…But still showing the identity of an essencial Priorat. Looking back, walking forward.

Perfectionist and empirical at the same time, Alfredo associates elaboration to creativity. The respect and curiosity for different origins and terroirs creates in his work the proliferation of itineraries through the territory, with the explicit duality between search/discovery… in the spectrum of his wines.

The wine family SiurAlta – mountain & almost monovarietal wines – and the series InStabiles – mutable origin and free composition wines – reunite for now the conclusions of this quest, in the shape of small editions of around 1000 to 3000 bottles in each cuvée. Wines capable of evoking an ancestral character and at the same time tuning in with the most sensible and advanced gastronomy. Naked wines.
