In the 1992 Olympic year we started "El Club". Throughout these 28 years we have toured the diversity of the world of wine, choosing the wines that excite us, proposing the latest novelties, exclusive elaborations and limited productions of young winemakers who have opened new paths and which over time have become become true stars. Today, in these difficult times and with a terrible worldwide pandemic without precedent, we arrive to Selection Number 300. We would have liked to be able to celebrate this selection in another way, sharing with you a good glass of wine, but it is time to take care of yourself. Selection Number 300 is very special to us. After 28 years and 300 months proposing more than 1,600 different wines we propose you this selection as a small tribute to the colleagues and the wine makers who have always supported us. The wine list would be endless, so we decided to remember our beginnings in the world of distribution. In Vila Viniteca we celebrate our 88th anniversary this year, but the exclusive distribution of wines came a few years later, in 1991, with the purchase of two boxes of Clos Dofí 1989 from Álvaro Palacios. We ask Álvaro to distribute his Priorat. He sold his first vintage almost exclusively to the American importer of the Romanée-Conti, and with him we went on a trip to learn about new projects in Ribera del Duero. We visited Hacienda Monasterio, where we met Peter Sisseck; Emilio Moro, where Don Emilio attended us in the old winery and, Dehesa de los Canónigos where Don Luis negotiated the sale of "lechazos" between wine and wine. And we also visited Pago de Carraovejas, which at that time was working with an innovating winemaking system, with obits and wider-than-normal tanks that gave the wine a fruity and an unusual structure. It was the winery we decided to distribute. The third winery we distributed was Terras Gauda. As a signing of footballer, we reached an agreement with Enrique Costas –who today continues to lead the commercial management of the winery– on the terrace of a bar in Las Ramblas in Barcelona. We know Miguel Ángel de Gregorio long time ago when he was the oenologist of Bodegas Loriñón and Conte Domain. In 1995 we knew about his project Finca Allende. Also with him, in 1998 came Paisajes, and we began an exciting journey that would gradually develop in other wine-growing areas of Spain in collaboration with great winegrowing friends. The sixth wine of the selection is a very ours wine, the next 2016 vintage of L’Equilibrista that Siscu Martí –viticulturist and co-owner of Vila Viniteca– makes in his Ca N’Estruc Estate. Six wines that are part of our history and that we are sure you will love. We can only say thank you. Thank you very much for your fidelity. Thank you very much for encouraging us to improve every day.
