Authentic wines from the Spanish countryside, from families that spend all their time tending the vines, hoping someone will taste their wines and say “I believe we can export these because they are wonderfully unique and delicious!” Núria Garrote-i-Esteve did just that, creating her company VinºVi&Co 10 years ago. She was born and raised in Catalonia, coming to Detroit because of the automotive business. But her passion for wine drew her back back to her heart, the import business. With each of her artisan growers there is a bond of trust, and nothing about her selections is typical, each wine has a soul. Núria will share her journey throughout Spain, pouring wines from Ribeiro, Tierra de Leon, Castilla La Mancha, Rioja Alavesa, Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Navarra and Valencia. You’ll taste native varietals, many uncommon: Souson, Prieto Picudo, Graciano, Mencia, Treixadura. And wonderful Champagne style wine from Raventos, a master of the category.
