“Fermented in a combination of stainless steel and French oak tanks; aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Deep, lurid ruby color. Ripe dark berries, roasted coffee, candied licorice and vanilla on the spice-accented nose. Plush and open-knit, offering sweet blackberry, cherry-cola, mocha and spicecake flavors and an exotic touch of allspice. Finishes very long, smoky and smooth, with repeating dark berry character and rounded, even tannins that sneak in late.”

-Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The quality revolution of Spanish wines over the last three decades didn’t happen on its own: pioneering individuals with visions of new possibilities have been the only consistent force for widespread change. Benjamin Romero is certainly one of those paradigm-changing winemakers. 
After more than a decade and at one of Rioja’s most resepcted properties, Artadi, Benjamin began Bodega Contador in 1995. In the following years he carried out small scale vinifications in a winery literally carved from the hillside rock, and continued to acquire vineyards. In 1999 he made the first vintage of “Contador.” Twice awarded a perfect 100-point score for his top wine, his innovative, small-lot productions in Rioja continue to expand what a world-class Spanish wine can be.
