Bio: Bodegas La Horra is a collaborative project of Bodegas Roda from Rioja and the Balbás brothers whose family has farmed some 160 hectares of bush trained vines within the region since 1777. The grapes are hand-picked and sorted based on vine age and parcel then allowed to ferment spontaneously. Cooperage and fermentation vessel depend greatly on vine age, where older vines are vinified in French oak and younger in Stainless steel tank. They only make two wines, Corimbo and Corimbo I, the latter composed of fruit from vines over 40 years of age. 

Are these the most natty wines to ever exist? No. Are the vineyards cultivated organically and the wine made with transparency? Yep. Oh and I almost forgot, the wine is really friggin' good.
