These wines are named for Don José Fernando de Abascal y Sousa, 1st Marqués de la Concordia, the 25th Viceroy of Peru... Perhaps in the name of brevity we should refer to him as Jo from this point forward. Jo spent 10 years running Peru but it wasn't all llama sanctuaries and selfies up Machu Picchu, o no. During his time, he was captured by the British after his release there were 2 earthquakes, a tsunami, a hurricane, the great fire of Guayaquil which destroyed half of Lima and a small pox epidemic. Jo probably wished he stayed in Madrid. This didn't seem to deter him though; he still managed to build medical facilities, promote educational reforms, reorganize the army and promote harmony between Latin-American and Spanish citizens. Very much like this wine actually; from the arid Spanish temperatures and unruly bush vines a wine with elegance and balance emerges.

Founded in 1896, Federico Paternina established this winery on a site featuring cellars dug in the 16th century, in Ollauri, Rioja Alta. In 1956 Paternina hosted a very distinguished figure: Ernest Hemingway. It is widely known Hemingway´s love for Spain, its culture and of course Paternina wines. After passing by different hands along the history, finally in 2014 Marqués de la Concordia added the Paternia winery to its family. Marqués de la Concordia are now committed to preserve the status of this beloved high-quality Rioja name. This Gran Reserva, with 10 years of age is showing wonderful development, with pronounced aromas of vanilla, coconut and leather. All harmonising with a mix of red and black fruit that still permeates on the palate.
