  • About this winery

    Grupo Artevino was founded from the expanding ambitions of the Anton Family. Originally coming from the restaurant world, the family owns the Michelin starred Zaldiaran.

    From sandy, chalky soils, (these grapes previously went into Flor de Pingus), the 2017 Pruno is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 12 months in used barrels. It offers loads of blackberries, black raspberries, toasted spice, and hints of oak as well as some graphite in a ripe, concentrated yet pure style. It’s a beautiful wine, developing a touch of minerality with time in the glass, and has both richness and freshness.
