The wines of Antonio García Santiago of bodega Garcia de Verdevique are well appreciated in our guest house El Paraje. They are natural wines from the Contraviesa with a lot of character. White wines do not have a large tradition in the Alpujarras, but Garcia de Verdevique makes a nice 100% Vigriego, which is an autoctonous grape variety.
A few weeks ago Antonio García Santiago announced a new white wine, that modest as he is himself, does not have a special commercial name. It is a mixture of Vigriego, Vioguier, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
It can be described as wine with a profound gold yellow colour, a subtle flowery bouquet, a long complex taste with a light nutty flavour and a fresh, slightly dry ending. Character again.
No doubt that we will keep this wine on our list.
