About Isaac Fernandez: Isaac Fernandez began exploring the world of Spanish wines in the late 1970s at Bodegas Mauro, working alongside his uncle, Mariano Garcia - the former winemaker at Vega Sicilia - to produce some of the finest wines in the region. He then transitioned into a successful career of consulting for many prestigious wineries with the goal of being able to produce wines using indigenous grapes throughout Spain. He seeks to respect the identity of each vineyard and to nurture wines that balance power, finesse, and purity with the capacity to age. He produces a range of red, white, and sparkling wines from six Denominations of Origin, including some of Spain’s most famous regions: Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda, and Cava.
