Microbio Wines is a family project headed up by Spanish natural wine master Ismael Gozalo. Ismael’s family owns some of the ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines in Rueda, dating all the way back back to 1748. These vines have never been chemically treated by the generations of farmers that have cared for them. Ismael is like a fairytale magician in his underground cellar in an ancient monastery, creating (near-)magical natural wines with unique characteristics and complex expressions. No one understands the Verdejo grape as well as Ismael Gonzalo, and no one makes more appealing and unusual Verdejo wines.
