“The fine wines of sound minds”

Atlan & Artisan – Murcia – Epistem

Epistem; inspired by epistemology, the theory of discovery, and the science of knowledge. According to antique philosophy there are two paths to explore: logical thinking and sensorial experience. Today, we know that both approaches complement each other. All wines are made in the vineyards and as such, the old bush vines play an important part. We own 100ha of old vines in Jumilla at 880 meter above sea level, a unique terroir, recognized by the locals as the best vineyards of Jumilla. Our two vineayrds are; Espernalas, A unique plot of 85ha as Clos surrounded by the stones of the vineyards and Panduro a north faced hillside sloped, pie Franco plot. Working according to organic principles; our vineyards are very low in production. Average ages of vines are 50 years.

Atlan & Artisan – Mallorca – 8 Vents

The climate surrounding the Balearic Islands is unique and so are the different corners on the islands, with different microclimates influenced by the sea and winds. 8 Vents – the 8 Winds of the Islands was born. Working with different vineyards in the north central and southern part allows us to make a unique blend, depending the character of each year. 8 Vents is a true expression of the Mediterranean island.

Atlan & Artisan – Mosel

Fascinated by one of the noblest grapes and the wines from the Mosel, we started a collaboration project with a small cellar and different vineyards from the Mosel, to create a fun, but high quality Riesling

If it concerns the original, we can only take into account nothing, but the best.

Concept: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.

The process: We looking at a natural approach, let the grapes express the meditarean climate. All the grapes are harvested in boxes and fermented in our cellar. After malolactic fermentation in barrels we select the blend for the final wine and age it further in French oak.
