New Release: Artuke 2020s – Raising the Bar
01 March 2023

We first visited brothers Arturo and Kike (Artuke) de Miguel five years ago in Banos de Ebro, Rioja Alavesa. Back then, Artuke was already being talked about in Spanish circles as one of the most exciting “new” projects in the region and a great addition to the country’s burgeoning “new wave” scene. Not long after that, they became a founder member of the “Futuro Vinador” group, who describe themselves thus: “We are a collective of vinegrowers, who work together to improve our viticulture, our cultural practices. We want to inspire others to follow an honest viticulture path, rooted in their landscape and the people themselves.” The list of members comprises some of the country’s most exciting, young producers including Guimaro, Telmo Rodriguez, Lupier, Aguila and Suertes del Marques.

A shining example of the “new” Old World, this small family estate produces fresh, enticing Riojas rooted in their origins, shooting for wines marked not by any ageing process or maturity but by vitality and minerality; shapes and textures hewn from the bedrock itself, with droplets of berried fruits and herbs that reflect the vines’ natural environment. In direct opposition to the brothers’ impressive physical stature is the delicate approach they take in the cellar. The wines are gently extracted and follow a largely static and lightly reductive maturation process, using a combination of concrete, fuder and used 500L barrels over 12 to 18 months depending on the wine, all in the pursuit of ageworthy, transparent regional, village and single vineyard wines.
