Bodega de Forlong, Cádiz

Organic and biodynamic wines from albariza rich soils in Cádiz

The veritable new kids on the block, Bodegas da Forlong have only been selling their wines since 2014 and are shaking up the staid world around Jerez.

The only organically certified operation in the area they cultivate tiny parcels of Palomino, Pedro Ximinez and Tintilla Rota. Mixing it up with some Merlot and Syrah they are creating something fresh and vibrant from this most traditional of regions and it is immediately noticeable as soon as you see the quirky labels that the wines are anything but boring.

They employ biodynamic, natural and sustainable methods to manage the albariza rich soils and vines in the vineyards, including using the cuttings from pruning as fertiliser and the use of ground cover crops to re-introduce nitrogen back into the soil and to stress the vines to compete for nutrients. This also provides a suitable habitat for insects that will manage the harmful pests in the vineyard.
