An idea, a dream, a personal project that revolves around the Grenache grape.
I’m Clemente García. I cultivate vines planted by my grandfather and process the grapes in a refurbished family winery. As the grandson of winegrowers, vineyards have had a special place in my heart since I was a small boy.
At the age of 18 I began to take care of the FAMILY VINEYARD, but it would be some years before I took charge of the old family winery and turned it into what is today, BODEGA CLEMENTE GARCÍA, a winery that bears my name, but also represents an entire family history. I hope that my wine reflects this history when you enjoy a glass.
You’ve got to have a try!
The 4 grapes of Rioja wine that I work with are very different from each other, they are VARIETIES of GARNACHA/Grenache, TEMPRANILLO and VIURAthat are blessed to have exceptional care and attention from us in our vineyard.
These wine are perhaps aimed at those who are looking for WINES which are a bit SPECIAL or unusual, such as the grenache aged in large clay jars or our white wine aged on its lees, for example.
Grenache, the pampered grape
I work with the Grenache grape with great care, a TYPICAL VARIETY in our area and recovered after a time when it was deeply undervalued. It allows me to achieve that AUTHENTICITY and IDENTITY in our wines.
