4 Monos (4 Monkeys) is a team of four friends native to the Sierra de Gredos, a mountain range just west of Madrid. The four met while hiking in the mountains and discovered that they each had a passion for wine. The group, whose first vintage as a team was in 2009, consists of winemaker Javier Garcia (also the head winemaker at Méntrida icon Bodegas Jiménez-Landi), co-winemaker Laura Robles, wine-lover David Velasco and vineyard-holder David Moreno. Their 4 hectares of vineyards are planted to old bush vines located between 750-960 meters elevation on granite soils. All farming is organic and winemaking is done with minimal intervention: whole-cluster fermentation, minimal extraction and aging in big oak barrels and foudres to impart freshness to the wines. 

This is a fresh mountain white with lovely aromatics and delicious drinkability. A blend of 60% Albillo, 25% Macabeo, 10% Chelva Blanca & Rosa, and 5% Moscatel from vines that are 25-100 years old, grown in soils of decomposed granite sand. The fruit was harvested by hand before undergoing whole-cluster maceration at low temperature for 12 hours. After a gentle pressing, the juice was racked into a combination of steel tanks and used 300 & 600L French barrels, where it was fermented with wild yeasts and aged on fine lees for 6 months. The finished wine was blended, lightly clarified with bentonite and bottled without filtration. A revelation for white wine from Sierra Gredos.
