Characteristics of La Bruja Avería
La Bruja Avería, marketed internationally asLa Bruja de Rozas is a red wine made in Madrid by Comando G. Comando G. is a young winery with the idea of producing wines from old Grenache. Hence the name G. G for Grenache.
La Bruja Avería is a single variety Grenache. The grapes are produced in three small vineyards aging from 50 to 90 years old, the soil is mainly granite planted at an altitude of 800-900 meters above sea level. This altitude enables a balanced ripening and very fresh wines. Comando G farms following biodynamic principals, completely respecting the environment. The grapes that are produced from each vineyard are fermented separately with local yeast from the vineyards. La Bruja Avería undergoes an aging for 7 months in 500 litre French wooden vats. A fresh Grenache with a lot of character.

Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
For many, Comando G will sound like the name of a cartoons series that was broadcast on Spanish television in the late seventies and early eighties. But in the wine world, Comando G has a very precise interpretation: "G" for Grenache and "G" for Gredos. A project that began thanks to the passion of three young wine enthusiasts whose goal was to produce the best Grenache wine. And they managed to surprise everyone with wines of a marked personality, traditional and modern at the same time, with slight colour, hardly any wood, good acidity. With a fluid texture but persistent, fine tannins, tasty and elegant. Their idea is to make quality wines that reflect the area, the soils, the vintage and the variety.
