The range of wines, produced by David Forcada and his family in the Baja region of Rioja, have been produced from vineyards that are between 60 to 100 years old and grown at up to 800 metres above sea level; both factors give the wines great depth of flavour and complexity.
Noel Reid, Wine Buyer for Robinsons Brewery, said: “It was incredible to discover such a unique boutique winery with such tremendous wines still hidden within Rioja.”
The brewery’s wine division will welcome Bodegas Forcada Joven, Vendimia Seleccionada, Crianza, Reserva and Alma Da Forcada Cepas Viejas Garnacha to its extensive wine portfolio of over 150 different handpicked wines from around the world.
"With only 200,000 bottles produced each year, this will be the first time the wines will become available in the UK” explained Noel. “David and his family have protected their site within the beautiful and dramatic landscape of the Biosphere Reserve in Rincon De Olivedo for generations and it is a pleasure to begin our work with this tremendous family and their hand crafted wines.”
The entire range of Bodegas Forcada Rioja will be available at selected sites across Robinsons’ 300 strong pub estate.
