  • For over a century, López de Heredia has been keeping it old school. Extended families from the Spanish countryside and Portugal, returning generation after generation, hand-harvest the grapes. They farm organically, cooper their own barrels and age their Cubillo Crianza for 2 years in used oak, fining them with (vegan alert) egg whites and rest the unfiltered wine for 2 more years in bottle before release.
