ARAEX GRAN SELLO BRUT ROSE
The Gran Sello range was born in 2010 in order to translate 20 years of passion into wines that offer the best of the Spanish sparkling wines. A careful selection of vineyards in the heart of Catalunya, protected by the mountain of Montserrat, has been the main focus for the production of Gran Sello. Our Cavas aim to present a fresher style from a Mediterranean climate: the altitude of the plots has the crucial advantage of cooler temperatures during the night which help us obtain grapes with a pleasant acidity. And the advantage of using the Chardonnay variety in the blend brings us more fruity and elegant notes. Gran Sello is full of pleasures and emotions to share in good company. It is certainly the best way to start enjoying the fine “Tapas culture.”

ARAEX GRAN SELLO BRUT ROSE
Entrepreneur Javier Ruíz de Galarreta founded ARAEX Rioja Alavesa in 1993 bringing together nine small and medium sized independent winegrowers from the Rioja Alavesa region. In just a few years, ARAEX became one of the main drivers of the production and export of the appellation.
In 2001, as the global popularity of Spanish wines expanded, along with his business prospects outside Rioja Alavesa, Javier created Spanish Fine Wines, a second company that grouped winegrowers from other respected Spanish regions, including Ribera del Duero, Rueda, Navarra, Rias Baxias, Cava and La Mancha. Now operating under the brand name ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines Javier continues to create new wine ventures characterized by quality, global projection and respect toward the regional identity and heritage of his Spanish vineyards, as well as new collaborations.
From the crafting of prestigious wines to the organisation of tasting panels, ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines‘ activities stand out for their excellence and vision. Among our latest initiatives, the current cooperation with the world renowned winemaker Michel Rolland is especially remarkable.
Javier also introduced the Spanish Fine Wines Institute to enhance education and appreciation for Spanish wines and wine culture among wine trade and consumers, lead scientific research in the wine sector and promote environmental stewardship and social responsibility in the sector.
