“My family and I are a third generation of wine growers and winemakers from Aragón (Spain), that, apart from our small family own wine project, also act as consultants for wineries in the whole country. Since 2002 we are working on our personal project –Mas de Mancuso- recovering very old high qualityvines –aged between 50-70 years old- at almost700mtrsaltitude in Aragón. We are based in Almonacid de la Sierra where we rented a very old winery trying to keep the same winemaking methods than our ancestors had.”
