PRODUCER: Vicente Cambra comes from a family of viticulturists dedicated to the cultivation of vines since 1905. From 2006, Vicente started a personal project based on the desire to bring to the market experimental wines from the best grapes of family vineyards in the Valencia area.
Eva Lopez (Cuvée) found Vicente Cambra a long time ago, while living for several years in Alicante (close to Valencia). Eva was really fascinated with Vicente Cambra family vines, both immediately started with their joint venture called “Parcelas de Familia”.
If one word best describes the wines of Valencia , the sun-drenched, mountainous portion of Spain that starts in Valencia and extends south to Murcia, it’s “Mediterranean”
The key to making fine wine in a hot and dry region like Valencia is basic and unwavering: a reliance on old, unirrigated vines (mostly Monastrell, Garnacha and Syrah) that produce less than 2.2 pounds of fruit per plant. This miserly production creates concentrated yet clean black-fruit flavors in wines like Vicente Cambra “Parcelas de Familia”.
