Agriculturist/Winemaker: Samuel Cano
Mota del cuervo, la mancha
Samuel was the first character I met on this unexpected brokering escapade & it was his wines that made me persist in attempting to understand the most challenging and soulful of natural, Spanish wines. His vineyards & cellar are located in the heart of La Mancha, aka: Quijote Country, and the wines are every bit a reflection of this land and Samuel's soul. Rustic, charming, playful yet stern, his craft is a vinous window into this side of the Spanish countryside, some of the wildest on the Iberian Peninsula.
