"Laureano Serres is the hometown hero of a small mountain village called El Pinell de Brai. Trained as an electronics engineer, he was appointed to act as director of the regional nuclear plant before a mid-career crisis that sent him running for the hills. Since 2001, he has been making natural wines from vines inherited from his grandfather and father-in-law. His approach to winemaking is intensely creative and somewhat anarchistic, with the number of yearly cuvees ranging from as few as 6 to as many as 16. His rules are simple but uncompromising: no wine is made with additives and no wine is made with apathy. He designs and prints his own labels on a 1990s Dell computer, using clip art." - Josh Eubanks (the importer)

'BBT' is Garnacha, with a very small amount of Macabeu from a young 7-year-old vineyard at over 500 meter altitude in the municipality of Vilalba Del Arcs. Direct pressing and 15-day fermentation in stainless steel tanks followed by aging in the same until January 2023. Laureano's wines are often bottled young, allowing for an active fermentation inside the bottle, which is why this is under crown cap. There may be some bubbles, but (depending on the bottle) it won't be a fully sparkling wine. It will remind you on the sun bleached, sandy, limestone soils high above the Mediterranean sea though.
