Castilla y León, Spain
In 2013 Ruben and Elisa launched a crowd-funding project named Uvas Nomadas whose goal is to produce every year a different wine in areas which have nothing to share with Cuellar and the Segovia area. The debut wine was a Garnacha produced in Cebreros, in the fantastic terroir of the Sierra de Gredos, belonging to the Avila province.
This is an ever changing special limited-edition wine project and its’ name Uvas Nomadas literally translates in “Gipsy Grapes”. How does it work? The couple locates a small old vineyard worth of restoration and attention. According to the agreements reached with the owner/s, they rent the vineyard for a single year. Individuals finance the project and at the end of the year every investor is rewarded with a number of bottles proportionate to the donation made. Isn’t it nice?
In April 2018, the 2017 Rufete came to life after having recovered an old vineyard in the Sierra de Francia area (not far away from the city of Salamanca), while the last project has been dedicated to the production of a great and intense Godello with roughly 1.000 bottles of pure fruit and entertainment
