WHERE: Waterford Wine & Spirits (631 Genesee St., Delafield)
After years of making wine for other people, David Sampedro broke out and founded his own garagisita winery so he could focus on his “Phincas.” Phincas are parcels of very old vines scattered throughout Rioja and all of Spain. Many winemakers find Phincas impossible to farm and unsustainable to make wine from. Yet to David, this is the majesty of Rioja — a centuries-old tradition of wines that’s proud of its origins, respectfully made as a collaboration between man and earth.
Join us as we welcome David’s local representative Erin Grace to showcase his estate’s dynamic and terroir-driven wines. Indeed, with all the Rioja wine I taste and drink, these are some of the most sensational new wines I’ve been introduced to all year.
