Winery to Watch 2017

Spain: Familia Nin Ortiz

Carles Ortiz and Ester Nin

Viticulturists Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz partnered in life and work, building this winery in 2012 on the outskirts of Porrera, one of the coolest and highest areas of Priorat. To get an idea of what makes their wines so exciting, try Nit de Nin Mas d’En Caçador. From an altitude of more than 2,100 feet, this blend of old-vine garnacha and cariñena grows on a cool north-facing slope. It’s deliciously fresh as it mingles bright fruit with elegant, schist-inflected tannins.
