- More solo project than side hustle, La Maldicion (The Curse) is Marc Isart's paean to an old, very old, style of winemaking. Breaking from his day job at Bernabeleva, in and of itself a bit of an outlier (it's name means bear path), Marc co-ferments organically farmed Tempranillo and Malvar with natural yeast, then ages the wine in both cement and 300l used French oak. He bottles without filtering, fining or sulfites.
