and two different winemaking styles but with a common goal have brought together French winemaker and consultant Michel Rolland and Spanish wine visionary Javier Galarreta. They both believe that Spain has excellent terroir and extensive know-how to make premium wines with real projection in the international markets.
As one of the most influential
winemakers in the world, Michel Rolland has worked with winegrowers across 13 countries and has influenced many aspects of both the French and global wine industry. Since establishing ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines in 1993, Javier Galarreta has applied his knowledge to place Spanish wines amongst the greatest. The firm, which was expanded in 2001 to add a wider range of Spanish wines to the original Rioja portfolio, is one the leading wine exporters in Spain. An innovative project: France meets Spain.
