Classical Wines is proud to introduce Bonafide Wine Estates, a selection of wines representing a continuing journey in the discovery of authentic producers in Spain and Germany.
In 1984, Steve Metzler and Almudena de Llaguno founded Classical Wines in the course of pioneering work with emerging wine estates in Spain. Seeking balanced expressions of terroir primarily from Spain’s higher and non-Mediterranean areas, a new image of Spain emerged. Classical Wines quickly gained international recognition as among the original and principal proponents of world-class Spanish wines.
The celebration of Classical Wines’ 25th Anniversary in 2009 served to underscore the multi-generational quality of its pioneering trajectory. Generational transition has been accompanied by a resurgent appreciation for natural wine expression. What a rush it is to again encounter young proprietors in love with their land and desiring that the fruit of their labors remain intact in the bottle!
From their earliest days in the field, Metzler and de Llaguno have found that genuine (bonafide!) winemakers make honest wine without pretensions. Bonafide® Wine Estates provides a vehicle for reaffirming this philosophy—the founding philosophy of Classical Wines.
The portfolio is replete with authentic gems and great values.
A warm welcome to Bonafide Wine Estates!
