Additional InformationAustralian born (from Spanish parents) Daniel Ramos, known as ‘Kapi’ or ‘El Capitan’’ to his friends (and the ‘Garnacha whisperer’ to those that have tasted his wines!) and partner Pepi San Juan embarked upon the ‘Daniel Ramos’ project in 2005 with the aim of showing the best of the grapes in the Cebreros area . They have owned their own winery since 2013, based in El Tiemblo. Many of the vineyards purchased had been abandoned for many years as were a hostile farming environment due to the steepness of the slopes. However, Daniel’s passion for viticulture and drive has saved and brought back some of the oldest, and best vineyards in the area resulting in some excellent and rather special wines.

The vines at this site near El Barraco are between 65 and 90 years old, and are planted on granitic soils with a Northern exposure. Made in a very minimalistic way, the grapes are double selected, before de-stemming and fermenting naturally. The wine is aged in 600L French barrels for one year and bottled without fining or filtration. The El Altar is one of Daniel's single-vineyard cuvees. This, along with the altitude, helps to retain freshness in the wine.
