Bryan MacRobert is one of a passionate and growing band of Rioja winemakers rallying for a fresher, elegant, authentic style. He’s originally from South Africa, where he was Eben Sadie's assistant winemaker before making his own wines in the Swartland. Bryan has a cellar in Logroño and looks after small parcels of old vines, often inaccessible to most machinery and ploughed by mule. He eschews American oak, and sometimes eschews oak altogether. His ambition is to shine a light on the single varieties of Rioja and how they behave in different sites, rather than in blends, because he passionately believes the intricate terroir differences inherent to the region are not being celebrated enough.
