Three Surprising Spanish Wines from… the Sommelier at El Club Allard restaurant in Madrid
Three seductive wines made from three first-class native Spanish grape varieties: Treixadura, Trepat and Rufete. Would you like to know why they were chosen by one of Spain’s best sommeliers?
El Club Allard (one Michelin star) is one of the most famous restaurants in Madrid. It is located in a stunning modernist building on the Plaza de España, in the heart of the Spanish capital. There we were received by Álvaro Prieto, a sommelier with a long international trajectory who is currently in charge of El Club Allard’s extremely well-stocked wine cellar.
We asked him to show us three Spanish wines that have surprised him recently. His selection brings together a white wine from DO Ribeiro called Lalama, made with the grape variety Treixadura by Dominio do Bibei winery; the red wine La Font Voltada, made with Trepat grapes by Vins Abadía del Poblet in DO Conca de Barberà; and finally, a red wine made from the variety Rufete by the collective Mandrágora Vinos in the province of Salamanca. Three wines, three gems.
