Market Price
To show you the value you're getting as an Angel...

Every month, we benchmark a selection of our wines against up to three comparable wines on the market. The Market Price is based on the price of those wines.

What do we mean by benchmark? We order the wines in and taste them blind against our own, or we use our market knowledge (over 30 years between us) to set an industry standard Market Price.

If you buy one of our wines and disagree with the Market Price, or it's not your cup of tea, we'll give you your money back.

About the wine

Silky-smooth Rioja with a feel-good story behind it
  • We first heard Claudio’s story in the summer of 2019 when a hip operation had left him struggling to manage his vineyard and a winemaker friend stepped in to help. That friend was our very own Carlos Rodriguez...
  • Claudio had previously sold all his juice to the big wineries for supermarket blends but Carlos realised straightaway that the grapes were too good for that so he sent us some samples and we couldn’t say yes fast enough! 
  • From the finest 40 year old Tempranillo vines comes this single vineyard Rioja that’s brimming with intense fruit, vanilla and chocolate aromas and flavours. The finest oak aging delivers a silky-smooth finish too so grab and glass and tuck straight in, knowing you have made an old man's dreams come true.
