Dominio de Punctum – natural organic wines from Spain
“Spanish Organics” case offer is a selection of natural, organic wines from a family-run estate at 750 metres near Las Pedroñeras in La Mancha (around half way between Valencia and Madrid). These wines really are stunning value, and even more so in this Special Offer Case!
Domino de Punctum is led by Jesus Fernadez (Viticulturist) who, together with his sister (and wine-maker) Ruth, have developed their parents vineyards into an organic Estate and Winery. It is an ideal place to grow quality vines naturally. They do not use any synthetic pesticides, herbicides on the soil, or chemicals in the winery, and all their wines have organic status. Biodynamic is a step further; they gained this added status in 2011. They harvest the grapes at night and their work in the vineyards coupled with careful winemaking produces some brilliant quality, brilliant value wines.
