The Grenache connoisseur making elegant wines with bags of finesse in the scorching Spanish heat

  • Jose co-founded Bodegas Jiménez-Land with his cousing back in 2004 when he was but a spring chicken. Things started out as small scale as they get, and Jose had a hand in every single task going - ranging all the way from pruning the vines to in-depth oenological analysis.
  • That kind of experience is priceless and points to a winemaker with a real passion for their craft and a carefully honed process that they know like the back of their hand. That's more than true of Jose - he tells us that the magic of winemaking is in watching a wine change and evolve with the time, love and energy you put into it.
  • Jiménez-Landi wines are notably fresh and elegant despite the scorching temperature of their region - Sierra de Gredos, in Central Spain. Jose has a minimal intervention approach and his grapes have the good fortune of growing on sandy soil, which allows for the kind of style, finesse and elegance you have to pinch yourself to believe.
