 Wine:  We loved this wine so much that we even chose it as our wedding wine. An exceptional wine made predominately from Marselan grapes, a hybrid of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from the foothills of the Dolomite mountain and the roots are grown close to the mother rock. As a result the wine contains a minerality, freshness and finesse.  The name "Moma" is derived from the blending of MOnastrell with MArselan.  This baby has been sitting in new oak barrels for 15 months.  So while we know its hard to resist, please try to contain your excitement and let this wine breathe an hour or longer before drinking.  It's well worth the wait!

 About Winery:  From the moment we stepped foot onto Casa Los Frailes it was love at first sight.  It's a pure gem!  Located in the Valencia DO, the artisanal family owned winery takes its name from the Jesuit Friars (Frailes in Spanish) who occupied the Estate from the 16th to 18th century.  The winery’s ancestors purchased the estate in a public auction in 1771. The property has remained within the same family for the last 250 years!

 Casa Los Frailes is committed to preserving the land as well as honouring the history and traditions of the estate.  The winery was certified organic in 2002 and currently follows biodynamic farming practices.  Paying homage to their ancestors, a range of their wines are even aged in the Friar’s ancient concrete deposits from centuries ago.  ¡Qué fuerte! (How cool is that!)
