Pre-sells is also known as 'en primeur'. It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, months before official release.
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn't enough to go around. Pre-release guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines - providing you are quick!
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £21.84 a case at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Prices are for 12 bottles unless otherwise specified.
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.

One of Spain's oldest vine growing regions, Cariñena's winemaking first flourished in the Middle Ages under the protection of the monasteries. Today this remote corner in northeast Spain is home to "fruity, modern, well-made wines that offer fantastic value for money" (Harpers). Don Mendo is a beautifully mature Gran Reserva from Bodegas San Valero, one of the oldest cellars in the region. One of their wines was chosen, above all others, to serve to King Juan Carlos when he visited the region on the DO's 75th anniversary. A lush blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and the eponymous Cariñena variety, Don Mendo is soft and juicy with a core of intense red fruit and gentle vanilla spice. The perfect partner to roast pheasant or partridge.
