Bodega Comando G
Self-proclaimed “enochalados” (crazy winemakers) – old vine production – 3 hectares
Fernando, Daniel and Marc became friends when they met at university in 2005. Within 3 years, they launched Bodega Comando G, where they aimed to further their passion for making wines which capture and express the terroir of very particular plots of land.
The G in their collective name stands for Garnacha, the Spanish grape varietal that they believe can produce the country’s most elegant wines when cultivated correctly. Their production focusses on the sub-region of Sierra de Gredos, just north of Madrid, where the trio search for plots of ancient vines which they believe can produce fresh, unique wines.
‘La Bruja’ consists of grapes from 50-80 year old vines based on granite soils, which are then fermented using wild yeasts before spending around 5 months in French oak. The resultant wine is young, fresh and playful, acting as a fantastic introduction to the potential of Garnacha from this intriguing, up-and-coming sub-region.
