Eladio Pinero 2009 'La Coartada' Tinto Grande Escolha, Alentejo, Portugal
Eladio Piñero founded Bodegas Mar de Frodes in 1983, after spending many years making Albariño wine, before the Appellation Rías Baixas was granted. In January 2003, due to events that have influenced the life of his family, he decided to sell his winery, only keeping the vineyards he owned. Supported by his family, Eladio decided to take a step forward, doing what really excited, and motivates him, and started making wines again. By showing their roots and history, he produced a red from Portugese Alentejo, and whites from Albariño Rías Baixas, while having absolute freedom to create, and develop small amounts of real wine.
