Triga, a project of Bodegas Volver, was founded in 2004 as a joint effort between importer Jorge Ordonez and oenoligist Rafael Canizares. (Jorge Ordonez is literally the guy who single-handedly re-introduced Spanish wines to America around 1987. As one of the most influential people in the Spanish wine world, any of his selections are sure to please!) Canizares recently bought out Ordonez and now owns 100% of the project. He makes use of the talents of Aussie superstar winemaker Chris Ringland, who has produced four 100-point wines, as well as two 99-pointers. The winery is located in Alicante near the largest marble quarry in the world!
The grapes come from five vineyards, one of which was planted in 1925. Four vineyards of Monastrell located in the Sierra de Salinas, Umbria and La Sima. The vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon is in the Sierra de Salinas and was planted in 1981. Altitude 600-750 metres above sea level. Fossilised limey soils with an upper layer of limestones. Planted in low system.
