Mariano is a magician from Requena, Valencia. His expression is pure sensitivity, pure inspiration, always experimenting.
From his enchanting seat in La Portera in Requena, he brings us close to a unique experiment in which he mixes individual components and creates products that you have never dreamed of before. His secret: he treats every grape like a diamond, he develops a wine line that always surprises with new ones.
His philosophy also includes tenderness, an openness to dialogue with nature and respect for people and traditions. You notice that quickly. When you spend a few days with Mariano, it’s hard not to make friends with him.
You can find all of this in his wines of course.
For example with the autochthonous grape variety Bobal, which has made Mariano one of the most delicate red wines of all time. He processes his cuvée of Macabeu and Tardana into a very fine orange wine that also goes very well as a meal companion. And then there are his sparkling wines: which range from conventional, traditional methods to centuries-old methods, and are made with Macabeu and Moscatel – you won’t want to stop drinking there.
And that’s not all. Because Mariano’s magic doesn’t stop. One day he throws ginger and grape varieties together, and the other day he makes a beer called Marianer – brewed from grapes.
You have to just love Mariano!
