Finding.wine Presents Bodegas Contador with iconic wine maker Benjamin Romeo, showcasing his line of cult-ish wines including the multi-100 pt Contador. Bodega Contador started back in 1995 when Benjamin Romeo acquired a centuries-old cave carved beneath the Castle of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. In 1996, Benjamin made the first vintage of his “La Cueva del Contador” and started to buy vineyards for his plan to become a bodeguero (wine producer) and in 1999 released the first vintage of “Contador” from the vineyards he acquired.

Benjamin didn’t start or stop here, he was the winemaker at Artadi from 1985 to 2000.  In 2000, after seeing these first wines favorably received by the market and press, Benjamin dedicated himself full time to his personal project. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate awarded 100 points to the 2004 and 2005 vintages of Contador made in his parents’ garage.

In collaboration with the architect Hector Herrera, Benjamin designed and opened a new winery in June 2008, to coincide with the summer solstice. The three floors or terraces mirror the original slopes of the site where it is located, enabling both fruit and wine to be moved by gravity.

 finding.wine prides itself in being a provider of top wines following Benjamin’s line of thinking who in an interview mentioned that he is not a winemaker that produces wines for millionaires but rather wines that people can enjoy.
