El Telar means ‘the loom’: a rich weave of Spanish & French flavours.

El Telar means “the loom” and this weaves a rich tapestry indeed. The threads used are the chunky local Monastrell grape variety, handpicked from a tiny plot of 65 year old vines, entwined with a Gallic twist from a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 months in French oak. Expertly woven together into a tight but silky smooth fabric of black fruit flavours, jellybeans, Alicante sunshine and souk spices.

A small family-run winery always on the lookout for what they call ‘Vinos de Autor’ (Author Wines): wines that reflect their personalities, produced using almost entirely artisan techniques. Despite their prestigious Alicante ancestors, husband and wife Andres Carrull and Marta Ribera are practitioners of what’s become known as “Garage bodega” which is less about 2-step and jungle beats and more about a cutting-edge, slightly “mad scientist” approach to each variety.
