As its name implies, this wine is made thoroughly by hand. They don't mean just in the winery either, but out in the organically farmed fields too, which is no small feat in a region prone to drought. There is one exception to the handmade claim, as the team does get a little assistance in weed control from the native black La Mancha sheep that graze the rows. We're ok with it.

The palate is lush and full with blueberry and cassis fruit. The lime/clay soil here though imparts nice acidity to balance the ripeness, leaving us with a wine that's easy-going enough to sip on while cooking and still stand up to dinner (thank you 1 liter bottle).

Food Ideas: black bean soup w/crema, Spanish bocadillo w/ham and manchego, grilled mackarel, enchiladas, roasted veggie pizza
