El Rincon comes from the Falco Family of Marques de Grinon.  Referred to as the father of Spanish wine, Falcó pioneered the modernization of vine growing and winemaking in Spain. Falcó graduated from the University of California Davis with a degree in viticulture and oenology in 1964. He returned home and began making wine, all the while pushing the boundaries of winemaking as set by Francoist Spain. In 1974, he introduced the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties as well as drip irrigation and night harvesting.

 El Rincón estate vineyard is in the Aldea del Freso region of the DO Vinos de Madrid. The family strives to capture the unique terroir in the bottle of each wine they make, and El Rincón is no exception. Here, the vines are grown in decomposed granite, which they believe lends an unmistakable elegance and precision to the final wine. 

Tasting Notes

The Wine is 100% Garnacha Tintorera. They are acid soils (pH5.5) comprised of decomposed granite sand (quartz, feldspar and mica) over a clay subsoil. The diversity of El Rincón’s soil profile lends to its wines an unmistakeable characteristic of elegance, giving them a more Atlantic profile.
