Every time I meet José María I learn more about one of Spain’s most magical wine regions – Navarra. He is impressively generous with his time, passion and knowledge.
Tandem Wines is a boutique winery established in 2003 by José María Fraile, winemaker Alicia Eyaralar and, as they tell us, ‘a small group of wine-loving relatives and friends’. The result is a collection of inspiring wines marketed under fabulous labels from a region that deserves wider recognition.
Listen HERE to José María tells us all about Navarra, Tandem and its wines. Then head out to O’Briens Wines (import and distribute Tandem) and pick up a Tandem Label. You will not be disappointed! These wines are exacting in their representation of the Yerri Valley, high altitude vines and immaculate winemaking. My favourite? Which to choose? Maybe Immacula – after all the name means ‘without blemish’! Or how about Ars in Vitro – Art in Glass …. they’re all worth looking out for! Oh, and lets not forget the Ros Rose produced by Lynne Coyle MW, Director of Wine at O’Briens, in association with Bodega Tandem. It’s really very good indeed.
Kevin Ecock’s WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty’s of Kathmandu – an excellent place to host your next event or celebration.
