Juan Carlos Arenas and Guillermo Fernandez Santos
Maldivinas was established in 2006, fruit of the passion for wine between two friends - Guillermo and Carlos. They are located in Cebreros (Avila) a traditional winemaking region, which is currently undergoing a process of reinvention. Carols and Guillermo say that they want the wines to be a meeting point in the good moments of those who drink them.
"We are committed to environment. We work the soil ecologically, respecting bio-diversity and avoiding chemical products that damage the ecosystem and make the soil poor. Our objective is to extract from the ground the aromas and peculiar tastes, that reflected in the wine, allow to recognize its origin and be proud of it.
We work grenache, the autochthonous grape of the region. Grenache produces vigorous wines, full-bodied and fruity, with a great bouquet, but elegant at the same time. full of spicy and candied aromas, and which can age for a long time if what the grape has inside is highlighted. We like what it gives and we want to share the experience."
