ABANICO, BODEGAS

Terra Alta D.O.

Bodegas Abanico began in the autumn of 2006 when Rafael de Haan and Nuria Altes decided to make their own wine in Celler Batea, Terra Alta. They thought they could create something special from the old vine Garnacha, both red and white, and Syrah in Terra Alta. The resulting wine Las Colinas del Ebro which has since developed into a successful brand in its own right. They realized that they could improve on what was currently being produced by wineries in terms of wine quality and packaging, and create a unique product.

Since 2006 Rafael and Nuria have developed numerous brands from all over Spain and continue to search out great wines, regions and projects to add to their range. Today, they are confident that every wine justifies its place in their portfolio and represents true quality, regional authenticity, varietal character, as well as great value.
