Variety: Albillo, Macabeo, and Chelva
4 Monos means “4 monkeys” and refers to four friends and lovers of wine native to the region of Madrid. This “gang of four” assembled in an extraordinary manner, while hiking in the Gredos mountains. This is a landscape that is a meeting of Mediterranean and Alpine; the region is often deemed magical for its beauty and diversity. The 4 Monos, with various backgrounds, have a unified mentality: organic wine practice, minimalism in the cellar, a focus on the land and variances in terroir. While the friends only founded 4 Monos in 2009, they are bringing the potential of the Gredos terroir to the world’s attention.
The GR-10 is named after one of the most famous walking trails of the Iberian Peninsula, linking Lisbon to Valencia. As the 4 Monos met while hiking, it is only natural they named their wine for a trail. This is a village level wine with the vineyards sourced from both Cadalso de los Vidrios and San Martín de Valdeiglesias. The wine ages in steel and used barrels. Varieties used in the blend are Albillo, Macabeo, Chelva, and Moscatel making for a very fresh mountain styled wine with intense aromatics.
