The wine truly captures the pure expression of the grapes, without the use of any additives, including sulfites.
Spartico is crafted by Bodegas Iranzo – One of Spain’s Oldest Estate Bottled Wineries, with evidence of vineyard production dating back to 1335. Bodegas Iranzo was one of first in Europe to receive organic certification and the first in Spain to receive USDA NOP certification. The wines are elaborated by winemakers Francisco Gabaldón, Professor of Enology at Spain’s oldest School of Enology, and rising star winemaker Raul Herrero.
While all of the wines in our catalogue are Made with Organically Grown Grapes, most have a small amount of sulfites. We have five wines in the portfolio labeled as “Certified Organic” that contain no added sulfites. Our winery partners that produce NSA wines have developed a proprietary method to ensure the wines’ stability without the use of added sulfites in production.
“It took us several years to perfect a winemaking process that would create a quality and stable wine without the use of any added sulfites in production,” said Alfonso Iranzo, proprietor of Bodegas Iranzo. “We are elated with the resulting Spartico Spanish red blend.”
What is Spartico?
The name Spartico and the label design are derived from the word Esparto, or Esparto Grass. For centuries Esparto Grass has grown alongside Spain’s vineyards, providing various forms of life sustenance (woven tapestry, coverings, papers) for the grower families. Spartico wine celebrates the venerable union of terroir and man – a biodiversity between Esparto and Spaniards- that has lasted through the ages.
