Ácrata stands for: no government, no rules, anarchy. From the vision that focuses on the individual rather than forbidding the possession of property. The only element, and its unicity being its only characteristic of the cosmos on where it develops.
Ácrata doesn’t have a defined space. Its very existence is formed from the actors of the valley as a laboratory of ideas inserted in a bottle without compromising the natural environment, seeking to take oenology out from closed spaces and commercial temptations in order to get back to the expression of the land in order to create ‘’emotional wine’’.
Ácrata is an open answer, contextual, but most importantly circumstantial to the presence of the grape in the valley. It is an alternative journey to the more traveled ones, an appeal to ‘’emotional oenology’’. Relating different worlds between dreams and actions. All this oenological activity creates emotions and breaks away with the established structures led by a will to renew and change. INSPIRING ANARCHISM.
Our work brings back traditional varieties (cultivated grapes from the 40s, 50s and 60s) like Palomino, Grenache, Carignan, Zinfandel, Misión, Valdapeñas (Tempranillo). The first years we harvested ‘conventional’ grapes from ‘traditional’ vineyards. All of them from season vineyards, worked by vine growers that don’t understand the market’s disregard for their grapes, by a globalization that requires mitigating their roots and rebuilding their lands with commercial varieties.
