Sotolon Selections {

Sotolon Selections is a unique portfolio focusing primarily on historic categories of aged, oxidative wine including Rancio sec, Maury and Banyuls; Garnatxa d’Emporda; and Madeira. In both process and expression, these represent links to some of our oldest winemaking traditions, their lineage extending back to the wines most prized by the ancient Greeks and Romans. They are wines transformed by time and by exposure to oxygen and, occasionally, heat, culminating in a complex “taste of age” and the trait known as “rancio”: the spicy, caramelized flavors in oxidative wines and spirits which, dry or sweet, can evoke walnut, maple syrup, curry, prune, balsamico or roasted coffee. Join us in exploring the taste of age!
