The astute among you will recognise that I have already recorded a podcast interview with José María Fraile of Bodega Tandem. That was at an O’Brien’s Wines Fair held at Dublin Castle back in Dec 2019. You can listen to it HERE. I just did. Not bad. Not bad at all!
Here’s the New One: Listen HERE
What was missing, however, was Jose’s partner in business and winemaker at Tandem, the very gifted Alicia Eyaralar. Well, here they are together in this podcast and here they are together at the winery:
I am a complete fan of the wines of Navarra in Northern Spain. The region offers a uniquely diverse collection of grape types and a great understanding of how to blend from both new and old vines. Then there’s the great differences across the region in terms of climate, geology and geographies.
Then there’s Tandem! This is a super modern winery bringing grapes in from ancient mountainsides. The team at Tandem does as as little as possible as these grapes are transformed into bottled wines. The result is a collection of finely crafted beauties. Listen in and find out why, and how, Tandem goes about its craft.
The wines of Bodega Tandem are imported to Ireland by O’Briens Wines.
