3 Viñerones

* 3 Viñerones, La Esquirla del Bardallo, is a project founded in 2015 in La Rioja by Javi García of 4 Monkeys, Carlos Sánchez of Las Bacantes and Nacho Jiménez de Alma, La Tintorería and Viñedos del Jorco. The project comes from an exceptional vineyard located in the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in the Rioja Alta in a place known as the Bardallo, which sheltered by the Sierra de Cantabria has a microclimate with a higher rainfall and where vegetation is less Mediterranean and more deciduous. This influences that the climate is somewhat cooler than in other areas and this, in turn, allows a longer maturation producing more balanced wines. Another feature of the Bardallo site is that the soils are calcareous clay with a rocky base of limestone. The limestone is part of the DNA of some of the great vineyards of the world and in the case of Esquirla, it is responsible for producing more refined tannins and providing a mineral texture to the wine. In short, these characteristics of the vineyard bring to the wine uniqueness and complexity making it more pleasant and interesting.

The vineyard, 35 years old, is planted with tempranillo and a pinch of viura and is fully worked in biodynamic agriculture. Luis Fernández takes care of viticulture with his son, who is also called Luis. Luis Sr. is a true passionate about the vineyard and has been able to transmit that passion to his son who helps him with enthusiasm. He is also passionate about classical music and you will often hear him compare how the different elements of biodynamic agriculture are an orchestra and the vineyard a symphony that must be interpreted.
