“Co-owners of wine”: When sinergy between wine lovers and wineries become a fact.
Looking for a sinergy between wine lovers (profesionnals but private people too), needs to be found nowadays in a world where wine for regular wine consumer is becoming higher and higher in price due to taxes and more and more difficult to find when what you are looking for is an “out off the beaten track wine”
The small, family run wineries who make wines only from their own vineyards optima grapes, granted respect at home, look for prestige and approval from abroad; they know this is a long, struggling task, and the first obstacle they have to tackle with is that they need to show their wines to wine consumers which turns out to be impossible due to the “lack of money and infrastructures” to achieve it.
Bodegas Ayerra wants to make a sinergy with these wine lovers who are looking for “outstanding out off the beaten track” wines and has in mind a project that could be the first of many others to follow later on.
The projects is based in the simple but interesting idea of Co-owning a wine. I’ll explain:
Bodegas Ayerra has being making a wine 100% old garnacha vines (from +30 to +70 years old) and selling as young wine. This year, production of Garnacha has been roughly 20% lower but excellent in quality and they have filled up the deposit with +30 years old vines Tempranillo grapes. Harvest has been so good in parameters of the grapes that Javier, owner, grower and oenologist, would like to take part of this wine and make it aged for laying down.
We are talking of small wineries who need to assure in some way that this new wine is being accepted. They have 10000l in deposit and they would like to age minimum 10 barriques (2250 liters, which is 3000 bottles). It is not a big amount, but for seeing if market accepts it, it may be the beginning. Provided project becomes real and wine expectations be fullfilled, maximum quantity that Javier could make the following years would be the 10.000l roughly, which is a limited production.
You, wine lovers, as co-owners of this new wine, assure that you will get a well-made wine (out of the beaten track), at fair prices and unique and exclusive for you. This is a challenge, yes, but the wine enthusiasts assure having a wine for enjoying during many years… And the winery, which is a family run business, counts on all the support and trustness from you to achieve a great wine without the pressure of finding someone to sell it.
I don’t want to give the name but a very renowned and highly priced winery started to get its great brand because this wine was not in the market; it was firstly made for friends of the family, but these friends of the family started to demand more wine for their friends and these friends did the same….).
Finally, this is a great opportunity for wine lovers to acquire a deep knowledge about the way these family run wineries work (grow their own vineyards in a traditional way and make their wines with the highest respect to Nature) and make strong ties with them.
If you are a winelover and also enjoy having great wines difficult (for not saying impossible) to get in your country, this is your challenge.
