Juicy & Smoky

A special collaboration between Lionel Osmin and the Basque & ex-rugby player Imanol Harinordoquy, Encierro celebrates the spirit of the traditions from Euskal Herria, a region in northern Spain and the South-West of France where the Basque people have lived for centuries.

Encierro is made from organic Tempranillo grapes grown in La Mancha region, just south of Madrid, where the landscape is shaped by vineyards, olive trees and the windmills that Don Quixote used to mistake for giants.

Fresh and low in alcohol (12%!), this Spanish wine has fruity aromas of blackberry, beautiful floral notes and a special smoky character. Easy-drinking, light bodied and with an extremely juicy palate. A wine to enjoy on its own or to pair with Spanish tapas: potatoes and onion omelette, roasted garlicky bread with fresh tomato and cheese and charcuterie boards.

About the Winery

Lionel Osmin & Cie

Lionel Osmin & Cie started out with just a group of friends with the same keen passion, with the same love for wines from the South West. Then they had an idea to achieve what nobody had ever done before: to create a quality wine-broking house based on South Western wines following the example of other regions such as Burgundy or the Rhône.

With that founding principle, Lionel Osmin & Co was therefore created under the leadership of Lionel boasting the discovery of the unique wines and vineyards of this region. From Jurançon to Cahors, from Gaillac to Bergerac, passing through Marcillac, Lionel Osmin & Co has become the sole transversal signature of the wines from the South West and their vineyards whose secrets which are yet to be discovered!

The result is a range of wines whose characteristics are faithful to the region and which are made to share the joy of discovering the vines and wines that are enjoyed and loved.
