‘Màquina & Tabla’ is the brainchild of a dynamic duo – Oriol the winemaker and Susana [Illa], who is the creative genius [behind the] marketing and presentation. They are a tiny family business that began in 2012 in Castilla y León. Their focus is in the details, and they believe in a high quality wine that is always respectful of the land and nature. Their project started from scratch, travelling around the region looking for the oldest and most peculiar vineyards. All their grapes are cultivated biodynamically, grown currently in rented vineyards.
‘Oriol the winemaker describes himself as having been an “oenopath” who, slowly but surely, became more and more interested in winemaking, a passion that turned into a profession during the 2000 harvest in Clos Mogador. Since then as a winemaker he has lead, or taken part in, several projects, including with Vinya l’Hereu, Heretat Montrubí, Els Jelipins and Prieto Pariente.
‘Now, with this project he says he is “happier than a kid in a candy shop”. Susana comes from the world of arts and entertainment, having been a creative editor in publishing, audio visual and new media for Prisa, Planeta and RBA, while conceptualising new ideas. She has managed teams and projects, as well as coordinated communication and production for small projects related to art and music. Now she’s bringing all of her experience and energy to Màquina y Tabla.
This wine is a Blend of Doña Blanca (30%), Godello (30%) and Palomino (40%). Fermented in oak barrels, unfiltered. Notes of soaked apple, citrus, pineapple and dill. Good acidity, good minerality, long aftertaste.
