Galgo Wines is a project which arose out of the friendship between the owner of a wine shop in Madrid (Ezequiel Sánchez-Mateos, Reserva y Cata) and an oenologist (Juan Manuel Gonzalvo, @expertoenvinos) and has as its objective the production of original wines from different locations and varieties. They began their Galgo Wines project with a Bobal wine, Bobal_Icon, which exemplifies its variety extremely well and exhibits a light touch of oak, and is offered at a very competitive price.
Ezequiel is responsible for the brand design and image, while Juan Manuel searches out the right grapes and coordinates production, stabilisation and the bottling of the wines. For the first vintage of Bobal_Icon (2011) they joined forces with the winery Vega Tolosa (Casas Ibañez) in Manchuela, which has provided both the grapes (Bobal grapes from 80 year-old vineyards, planted out on calcareous soils at an altitude of 750 metres and grown organically) and the wine bottling equipment.
Místicos is another of their creations, produced from old-vine Garnachas grown in Calatayud.
