Origin Spain, Basque
Brand Artadi

The Artadi estate in the Basque country of Spain, was created in 1985 by the dynamic visionary winemaker, Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle. His objective was to seek and nurture the concept that Tempranillo, when cultivated at high altitude, low-cropped, and from old vines, produces extraordinarily rich and profound wines. This, coupled with specific barrel treatments (with minor American oak influences) produces some of Spain’s best wines.

Artadi is about purity of extracted fruit with almost Burgundian textures. In fact, critics have often compared these wines to the top wines of Chambolle-Musigny and other top appellations of Burgundy. The key to this level of elegance comes from the cold winds of the Pyrenees which blow from the north. This coupled with moderate temperatures tend to make these wines a study in elegance and power, the 'iron fist in a velvet glove' if you will. They are some of the most extraordinary examples of Tempranillo in the world. 

This is Artadi’s entry-level ‘village wine’ of the village of Laguardia, made from 20-30 year-old selected vines. A deep garnet color leads to an intoxicating aroma of dried herbs, creamy oak and blackberries and an impressive, powerful flavor replete with ripe strawberry, spice and round tannins. From organically grown grapes.

The young red 2019 Viñas de Gaín was produced with Tempranillo grapes from different vineyards in Laguardia and Elvillar at 450 to 700 meters in altitude, and it fermented in oak and stainless steel vats followed by malolactic in barrel and an élevage in barrel for nine months. They aimed for a fresh, fruit-driven and juicy red that comes from a low-yielding year, so the wine is concentrated but keeps the approachable style. It has nice balance. In warmer and riper years, they do shorter macerations at lower temperature and a short élevage to keep the aromatic and fruit-driven character, avoiding heavy wines. This is always a very good value within the Artadi range. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2020.
