01. Because the world made us this way, originating from different parts of the globe, with family genes and origins from other parts of the globe, so that our surnames are unusual in the land of Rioja.

02. Because despite this unusualness of our surnames in Rioja, we decided that the project should be named after us as we are the ones responsible for our project and that our surnames should be pointed out above all other considerations.

03. Because our project has started from scratch, without historical ties or previous assets to attend to, we are free to search within the scope of our possibilities and what seems best to us, and that is what we offer to our clients, we are building this project together step by step from the ground up.

04. Because we always respect the soil, vine and climate, we love diversity, in that our wines can be single site, varietal or inter-varietal, trying to express the best that each specific circumstance of the terrain can reflect.

05. Because before working with the Rioja vineyards, Bryan worked with very diverse vineyards in the Swartland and Priorat, so he knows perfectly how to extract the potential of each variety and vineyard. In this land he loves to express the vineyard if it is considered a special vineyard or the variety, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Viura and Malvasia de Rioja, aspiring not to interfere or alter the essence of the vineyard, variety or region.

06. Because we take care of our vineyards and our wines in the most organic and ecological way that we can, without demonizing the actions of man, especially one who cares and tenders them, in search of the highest quality of the fruit.

07. Because we shy from any typification that is not the result of the vineyard itself, and we think that each plot and its climate are different and therefore deserve differentiated treatment, for the best preservation of the land and obtaining the best possible quality of its fruit.

08. Because we shy from the use of excesses of wood that can alter the nature of the wine in order to obtain a homogenized result, and we only use it for its intrinsic qualities that help to stabilize the wine naturally without altering the flavour of the wine.

09. Because we do not share the same philosophy that wine that is not aged in small barrels for an established time and manner is of a higher quality but equally generic. We vindicate our careful way of production, and the proper use of large oak vats, barrels, concrete or stainless steel that tend to ensure the transparency and personality of each wine produced in them.

10. Because we are not terroirists or marketers, we are humanists; in wine a big part depends on the attitude of the person who makes it and the tools he has at his disposal.

We have chosen the mountains as the image of our winery.

The mountains convey ideas of ascent, verticality and solidity; of mass.

Besides, those chosen also express our idea of diversity, biodiversity,

which we understand to be a tradition in Rioja.


At the base is Table Mountain. It is the base not so much because it is the lowest mountain and because it is literally at the table where our work is especially appreciated, but because being the iconic image of Cape Town sends us back to Bryan MacRobert, the soul of our project, who always had it in sight in the years when his passion for wine was developing in the family farm there at the southern edge of the southern hemisphere.

The other three form mountain ranges that give an idea of the diversity of Rioja: they embrace four different political communities and account for the different climates, soils and vines that give variety to our wines.

In ascending order, firstly the Sierra de Cantabria, which marks the northern boundary of the Rioja. We have chosen a profile that can be seen from properties that we cultivate in the Rioja Alavesa, in which El León dormido (The sleeping lion) stands out, and is also the closest reference to the city of Logroño in which we live.

Next is the profile of the Sierra de la Hez which marks the southern limit of the eastern part of the Rioja, taken from the Tudelilla vineyard which supplies us with that very special garnacha.

And the highest, the Sierra de la Demanda, where the Monte de San Lorenzo (Mount San Lorenzo) rises up, the totem of the Rioja, the southern limit of its western part and perceptible almost from any point of our vineyards in the area, including the Rioja Alavesa. The mountains are defined by colours that can be as changeable as life itself, and enclosed in a circle that seeks to indicate the sum of hemispheres that our names express, but which does not close completely because it opens up to new expectations and horizons. Perhaps you can imagine the glass and feel the land of the wine that is drunk from it. Two notes of colour, perhaps the sun, perhaps the moon, which mark our rhythms, complete the perspective
