A gentle, modest young guy...with very little to be modest about. After all how many winemakers his age have managed to win 90 points from the world's most influential wine critic, Robert Parker
Burgo Viejo is owned by 6 families of farmers, not winemakers or salesmen. They used to simply sell their grapes and never see the true products of their labours. Then Gorka came to save the day and showed them exactly how good their grapes were!
His second love is head banging guitar...and having tasted his wines, and heard his music, we should all be grateful that wine is his first love! Save everyones ear drums, support this winemaker in his fantastic contribution to Spanish wines

"Other than my second great love, which is playing the electric guitar in a rock band, wine is my life and passion. It's a magical career and I was hooked as soon as I started training.
The thing I love the most is that this work is a kind of art. There are no recipes: each grape, each wine, each vineyard, each year, each barrel? all are different and need different decisions depending on the moment and everyday there is something new to learn. When somebody tastes and likes your wine it is an amazing reward. Then you know that all that hard work is worthwhile!
I have a fantastic team at Burgo Viejo - Carlos is my right-hand man in the cellar, and we have a dedicated group of vinegrowers. Between us, we make sure that each wine we create is produced with the best grapes available, whether we're making 100,000 bottles or 5,000 bottles.
If you are ever in Rioja, please come and visit us - I love going on holidays to vineyards, a great way to spend your time relaxing!"

At Naked Wines we define fine wines as wines that need more than one year from vine to table. This is a subject of very heated and earnest debate among wine enthusiasts, and every one of them seems to have their own definition. So we just picked the one that made the most sense to us!
In our humble opinion (and there are many who would disagree) fine wines are not NECESSARILY:
From classic regions like Bordeaux and Burgundy. Other less well known regions are capable of producing wines that blind taste tests rate as equivalent or even better than the classic regions.
Estate Wines. Many expensive wines source most of their grapes from independent growers.
In September 2013, we launched a Fine Wine Bond where we raised £5 million to invest in the 'top-end' stuff.
So we're well armed to take on the fine wine market with a bang - and our range of fine wines will be increasing over the next few months / years!
The bond offer is now closed, but we might run another issue in the future if there's enough interest…
Smart move - you've found the Sweet Spot
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending $11 - $15 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a $8 - $10 bottle... pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works...
The first several bucks you pay for a bottle covers basics that don't make the wine taste any better (glass bottle, bottling, labeling, closure, etc). As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than dry goods, taxes, and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
These Sweet Spot wines have benefited from the very best fruit picked from immaculate vineyards, oodles of TLC, and a lil' extra Angel-funding at every step of the winemaking process.
Pull yer socks up. Because if these Sweet Spot beauties don't blow 'em off I don't know what will
I guarantee our Sweet Spot wines will blow you away. If they don't, then I'll give you every single penny back. So you've really got nothing to lose.
