What do you adopt?

Contreras Ruiz is a family owned winery, producers of quality wines focused on the local Zalema grape variety on vineyards near the sea and working only with their own grapes.

Close to the Doñana National Park, one of Spain’s main natural treasures, Contreras Ruiz aims to express the landscape and the origin of the soils in wines with an Atlantic personality and saline essence. Since 2013 they have been in the process of organic farming certification, without herbicides or insecticides, using only organic fertilisers. The aim is to integrate as much as possible the vineyard in the environment through processes that favour agricultural diversity and promoting the conservation of the rural environment and the landscape.

The winery is a building dating from 1868 with five buildings separated by 30-metre high arches and ironwork typical of the south of the Iberian Peninsula. The family project begins on the land, in the vineyard. Combining the inheritance received with the development of a viticulture of observation and balance, working the vineyard in order to obtain sincere wines, with a harmony between alcohol content and acidity and a marked character that reflects the personality of a terroir.

The winery’s aim is to achieve complex wines, with a predominance of primary aromas, where the grape variety shines naturally. The same grape, different expressions, different sensations.

With your adoption you are supporting an Andalusian family winery that produces PDO Condado de Huelva wines from the native Zalema grape variety, continuing the family history and legacy that began more than 150 years ago.

What will you receive?

Every four months you will receive a box with two bottles of wine from the Contreras Ruiz winery:

  • Viña Barredero 2022 

White wine DO Condado de Huelva 100% Zalema (75cl) – 12,0%

Straw yellow colour with green-greyish reflections. Fine and elegant nose, with of fresh fruit, critical and orange blossom, with slight herbaceous and balsamic notes. Smooth and glyceric on the palate, with a balanced flavour, ample and unctuous, fresh and saline, with a rich retronasal passage and a long finish.

Barredero is born from the search for a young monovarietal with personality, from an assemblage of plots that provide complexity. Its aim is to play with the different expressions of the Zalema variety and to show the typical character of Huelva whites. After the manual harvest, the must is fermented at a low temperature for 14 days, after a special maceration where the must is in contact with the grape skins in order to obtain the best aromas. The wine is then aged for 90 days on fine lees.

  • Vallehondo 2022 

Red wine DO Condado de Huelva 100% Syrah (75cl) – 13,5%

Cherry red colour with violet rim. Intense, elegant nose, dominated by ripe red fruits, jams and compotes. Spicy notes, black pepper, liquorice and, in the background, hints of tobacco and vanilla. Silky and unctuous on the palate. It reflects the character of the south and the Mediterranean. A fresh entry due to the proximity of the coast and a persistent and structured finish. Round and elegant tannin, assembled with well-integrated wood.

Vallehondo is the result of the fourth generation’s desire to make red wine production a true reality in the winery. It comes from a Syrah vineyard planted by his grandfather in the early 1980s. The age of the vineyard, the terroir where it is grown and the climatic conditions of the region favour a perfect expression.

  • Lumé Brut 2021

Cava DO Condado de Huelva 100% Zalema (75cl) – 11,5%

Straw yellow with hints of new gold. Fine, integrated bubbles. Saline nose, young on entry, orange blossom, fresh green apple, quince compote. Mixed with subtle aromas of ageing contributed during the months in bottle, such as dried fruits, toast and pastries. Very fresh on the palate, silky, ample entry, glyceric touch and long finish. Serious and young at the same time. Notes of freshness, citrus fruits, pronounced acidity that becomes balanced with the alcohol and the ageing sensations reminiscent of artisan pastries and caramel.

Produced using the classic champenoise method, i.e. a second fermentation in the bottle. Subsequent ageing for 18 months with the aim of integrating the bubbles to give off an elegant and delicate touch, accompanied by aromas of pastries, without losing the freshness that gives this brut its personality.

  • Flor de Édalo 2022

Semi-sweet white wine DO Condado de Huelva 50% Zalema and 50% Alexandria Muscat (75cl) – 12,0%

Yellow colour with greenish reflections, clean and bright. Intense citrus and floral aromas reminiscent of grapefruit, jasmine and orange blossom. Notes of fruit salad with very ripe peach. A sweet entry on the palate that is quickly balanced by a very fresh acidity that gives it a youthful, fun, springtime character. Notes of candied citrus fruits, green apple and white flowers return. Medium persistence and clean finish that invites you to finish the bottle.

A semi-sweet wine produced in equal parts with Muscat and Zalema. Each variety is vinified separately. The Muscat is worked to obtain a dry Muscat and the fermentation of the Zalema is cut with cold to maintain the desired concentration of natural sugar and a low alcohol content.
