Tomatierra Cabernet Franc Casa Balaguer, organic, natural wine, no added sulphites, newish plantings of vines 650 metres above sea level yielding fresh, fresh Cab Franc of immense drinkability.  Finca Casa Balaguer have a small plot of 14yearold cabernet franc vines whose production they used to sell to other producers given that international varieties do not generally fit the Casa Balaguer philosophy (most of their range are from indigenous varieties).  However, one year they decided to make a small 500 litre batch just for friends and family. It was such a hit that it was all gone within just a couple of months. This spurred them on to launch a new wine the following year and Tomatierra was born.  Tomatierra Cabernet Franc, (meaning earth contact) features Gaia the Greek goddess of the planet on the label.  It is an electric wine, full of delicious crunchy Cab Franc fruit, energy and balance.  Will go with pretty much anything.

In every sense Finca Casa Balaguer is a garage winery based in the industrial town of Villena, inland Alicante.

For the last 10 years this young dynamic team lead by winemakers Andres Carull and Marta Ribera have been championing local varieties with the focus on maximum expression and minimum intervention. Building from the ground up the Finca Casa Balaguer winery has gone from strength to strength and is today one of the most highly regarded producers in the DO Alicante region. Production is certified organic and care of the vineyard is taken while respecting the environment. To control pests they use pheromones for sexual confusion and natural traps. Wine making is very hands off with limited filtration and fining and very low levels of sulphites.
