Maisulan, El Hondon, Rioja, 2020
Maisulan is the work of Eva Fernández and Luis Ruiz de Viñaspre. They describe themselves as "two crazy people who are in love with their land" and therefore work it in a very special way. Both Eva Fernández and Luis Ruiz de Viñaspre come from Rioja Alavesa. In Luis' case, you can even tell from the name, because Viñaspre is a neighbouring village to Elvillar, where they also own plots of land. The vineyards are mostly on slopes and the vines are mostly still trained as bush vines. The winemaking couple already turned to organic farming with biodynamic means many years ago.
