Variety: Listan Blanco
Four friends who met over a decade ago while studying enology at the University of Miguel Hernandez in Alicante (Spain) share a passion and mission to explore the ancient terruño of Spain’s temperate Atlantic coast appellations. It’s all very old-fashioned (and labor-intensive). They scout pristine vines that grow wild – no fancy trellises for this group! No chemicals. No machines or animals, only human hands. The unique Benje Blanco is a slightly oxidized white wine that the foursome describes as “a high-toned white wine, showing its volcanic terruño with smoky notes wrapped around the orchard fruit core, braced by Atlantic-infused high-elevation acidity.” Meet your natural wine guides: Laura Ramos (Murcia), Jose Martínez (Almansa), Roberto Santana (Canary Islands), and Alfonso Torrente (Ribeira Sacra).
