When Ana and Iván got together for a party
with some oenologist friends in 2007, they decided to make some
wine and put it in a barrel.
The results of this first vintage were astonishing and so
Bodegas Gratias was born. After the success of the first vintage,
they realised they had a chance to make a difference. In a region
with a declining wine industry, Ana and Iván are on a mission to
protect old vineyards of Bobal and other local varieties,
championing the vinous heritage of the area.
Hopefully not quixotically, they are keen to show that great
wine can still be made here and that the region's traditions can
survive and flourish into the future. These wines are artisinal and
as natural as they come, being organically grown, fermented with
natural occurring yeasts and minute sulphur additions, if any.
