Superstar combination – uniqueness of origin – winemaking giants
Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild Vega Sicilia
Macán is the result of a unique new partnership between a pair of winemaking heavyweights steeped in history; Vega Sicilia and Benjamin de Rothschild. In 2003, Benjamin sought out Pablo Alvarez of Vega Sicilia in order to ask for advice about entering the Spanish winemaking market.
Rather than simply offering encouragement, Pablo offered to act as a partner in the project – and Macán Clásico was born. The philosophy of Macán is very similar to the central ethos we have at l’Art du Vin, that wine should reflect a particular place, in this case, the village and terroir of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in Rioja Alta. Undoubtedly a knock-out wine from a star-studded team.
