Villa Narcisa Verdejo 2010
Javier Sanz's family have been winegrowers for four generations. Javier's great grandfather, Agustín Nanclares, started making wine from the grapes grown in their Villa Narcisa estate, which is the name given to Javier's premium wine. Javier has 104 hectares of his own vineyard and a modern winery, but maintains that the key to growing good grapes is a traditional relationship between the grower and the vine.
