“To make something based on the original,
the true beginning.”

Murcia · Epistem
We have been in this region since 1998, working with the old vineyards of Monastrell. In 2011 we made our first vintage of Epistem.
Inspired by the philosophy of natural branch of the Theory of Knowledge, Epistem, is the product of two paths that lead to the truth in nature: logical reasoning and sensory experience. Applying analytical thinking to the manifestations of nature.
Working with our own vineyards and other artisans with the same approach, of sustainable organic production.


Mallorca · 8 Vents
Majorca – the biggest of the Balearic Islands with great heritage of forgotten wine culture, we found similar Artisans as of the main land. The Island and the Sea given its nature as island, each direction open to the sea, the winds brings the most influence in agriculture. Each corners of the islands creates special microclimates and seasonal changes. To source the grapes of our artisans we select different locations, to create a wine under the name of 8 Vents – 8 winds of the island.


Mosel Germany
Unique and breathtaking: the terraced vineyards along the Mosel river valley. Cultivated thousand of years ago by the Romans. Here, in extremely stony shist-ground, grow some of the best wines in the world. The wines for Atlan & Artisan are vinificated out of selected vineyards and parcels, cultivated by Artisans. Each grape is picked by hand in small boxes, manually selected, carefully fermented and bottled. For a wine with a home and its story.

Epistem begins with a careful selection of vineyards, whose owners who know their terrior inside out.

Atlan & Artisan works in the same directions in our own vineyards and as well with few selected artisanal grape growers, in an organic approach with the nature.
The harvest is a lengthy process between the different parcels of the old vines and younger plots. Few different selections are done in the vineyards. As such, the wine that we make from each parcel possesses distinct personalities that are true expressions their immediate terroir.
