About This Wine Más Que Vinos was founded in La Rioja in 1998 when three friends Margarita Madrigal, Alexandra Schmedes and Gonzalo Rodriguez met. Three winemakers, each one with extensive winemaking experience. Seeing the great potential of the vineyards in Gonzalo’s hometown of Dosbarrios (outside Toledo), they launched their personal winery project rescuing old plots of indigenous grape varieties and moving to all organic viticulture. They renovated the old family winery (from 1851) and in 2007 constructed a new modern winery in nearby Cabañas de Yepes. Racy berry and citrus zest aromas with a hint of mineral and floral scents. Fresh, focused, and lithe with juicy wild strawberry, raspberry, tart blood orange and zippy citrus flavors.
