Winery to Watch 2014

Granada, Spain: Barranco Oscuro

It’s hard to keep track of the wine scene in Spain. Grapes are being rediscovered, ancient and forgotten regions reevaluated and new wineries emerging, all lending an unprecedented dynamism to Spanish wine. One of those new names is Barranco Oscuro. Located in the Sierra de Contraviesa, the mountains near Granada, this winery operates outside of any traditions, creating crazy and original wines in a vineyard area that had been completely forgotten. Take, for example, one of the most original wines we tried in 2014, Vino Costa, a wine as unclassifiable as it is delicious.
