The Oddbins Take

Sometimes, for some inexplicable reason, a city becomes a hot bed of culture encompassing so many significant minds, when it’s over you need to take a step back and ask yourself, did that really happen? Like in Vienna at the start of the 20th Century; within a 2-mile radius there was Freud, Klimt, Franz Ferdinand, Hitler, Tito, Trotsky and Stalin. Was somebody handing out, like ‘dictator soup’ or something? A much less despotic but equally significant time and place was Manchester in the late 80s. Bands like New Order, the Stone Roses, the Happy Monday’s and the Smiths; you could see them all in one week! There was one thing perhaps at the centre of this cultural explosion; the Hacienda club. The birth place of house and the spiritual home for all 24-hour party people.


Hacienda del Carmen isn’t from Manchester yet there is a similar buzz around Arlanza. Although Arlanza was virtually unknown, wines such as this, an incredibly elegant expression of Tempranillo displaying notes of black berries and violets are challenging the institutions of Rioja and Ribera del Duero. There could be a winemaking revolution coming; let the party begin.
