Vins d'en TomCatalonia, Spain

Vins d'en Tom are some of the first wines we have imported from Spain, and is the project of an old friend who we're so happy to be working with once again. Full disclosure: Tom Craven isn't a Spaniard, he's actually an expatriated Bristolian who some of you might remember as being the charming and ever-so-slightly chaotic energy behind Vinnaturo. The label shipped to our shores simple, good quality natural wines from France, Italy and Spain in 1.5ltr 'bagnums' and kegs, at a time when many believed that wine in such vessels could only be of the lowest quality. A lot has changed since those days! Vinnaturo still lives on, but Tom has left the country and now resides with his family in the wine region of Empordà, Catalonia, just below the French border.

Tom has vines of his own now, and is currently, by his own admission, in the labyrinthine process of figuring out exactly how to guide their fruits down the long and often winding path to becoming wine. There's a lot of trail and error, highs, lows and experimentation as he figures out 'the what, the where, and even, sometimes, the why' whilst making his way to bottling his first vintage. Knowing Tom's good taste and knack for picking the right wines for Vinnaturo, we eagerly await the fruits of his labour when the time is right. In the meantime, he has started with a collaborative efort, featuring old friend and organic winegrower, Dionisio di Nova from further south in Castilla la Mancha. Watch this space from more wines from Tom in the near future...
