“Bruno Murciano is a Spanish sommelier who works in London. Contrary to all odds, instead of investing in a flat in London, he decided to buy a Bobal vineyard in his homeland in Valencia […] they have produced a top-of-the-range red, El Sueño de Bruno a Bobal from chalky soils […] and there will be some more wines coming soon, like a fresh and pale Malkerida rosé and perhaps a new single-plot Bobal red from sandy soils.” Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate February 2015 Bruno Murciano, one of the UK’s most well regarded Spanish Sommeliers, with more than 16 years of international experience, is pursuing a lifelong dream to produce a range of wines made from Bobal in his native homeland of Utiel-Requena. Working alongside his brother Jose Luís who looks after the viticulture and winemaking with the initial help of David Sampedro, one of Rioja Alavesa’s 5 th generation of vine growers from an extremely talented winemaking family, they have combined their joint experience and passion to produce an amazing range of Artisan Family wines from high altitude 7 hectares of organically grown vineyards above 900m. Bruno and Jose Luís use artisanal methods and biodynamic techniques, with very little intervention in the cellar, whilst following the lunar biodynamic calendar to achieve the very best results.

Appealing nose with intense aromas of cherries & blueberries completed with a hint of black liquorice & violets. Dry & light fresh palate with crunchy red fruits and a silky tannins texture with refreshing balanced acidity.
