TABERNER - BODEGA HUERTA DE ALBALÁ
Huerta de Albalá, lives and works to produce one of the finest red wines in Spain; a wine with the character, goodness and strength of the pilgrim who devotes each day to preparing his spirit for its culminating moment, because uncorking a great wine is like reaching Plaza del Obradoiro in Santiago de Compostela for the pilgrim. So before sipping those last drops, you cast your mind back and realise that the best thing was not getting there but the whole journey: every day, every supplication, every friend made along the way, every bottle of wine.
This is the essence of TABERNER, and it is to this end that they continue working steadfastly on each and every vintage, with the same ambition, determination and perseverance as at the beginning; not to conquer the world, but simply not to lose the soul that one day they poured into a dream called Huerta de Albalá.
