Adega Damm Amandi
The name Adega Damm Amandi might seem like a bit of a mouthful.

(Wait until you see the name of one of the wines...)

And, well, it is...

...and all of their wines are mouthfuls of pure, kaleidoscopic Galician magic.


Longtime Danish wine importer Martin Damm acquired several vineyards and a small stone cantina in the Ribeira Sacra zone in 2017, and, utilizing skills he learned through several harvests in Burgundy, began bottling single vineyard wines that reflect both the terroir and make-up of each plot.

I had the pleasure of tasting two of them the other week and now they're here, and I'm excited... say the least.

I mean, we've had three straight gorgeous Spring days here in NYC, and you can just feel the glow emanating from people.

For me, one of the very best-est compliments to a fresh Spring day has always been a lightly-chilled glass of sprightly, aromatic and herbaceous Galician red...

...and here are two such wines from this estate to keep an eye on.

(And they also happen to be two of the coolest looking bottles in the shop at the moment...)

Get your Spring day on with some Galician purity!

Buzo Tinto 2019 - the lovely entry level Buzo is actually a blend of Mencia from Damm's various sites around Amandi (Novo, Seoane, Pombeiras, etc.), and, like the other wines, spend a year in used Denis Bachelet barrels.  It's bright, pure and oh-so elegant in its red-fruited, mineral-packed profile.

La Vina Que En Su Dia Era De La Casa Tinto 2020 - like I said before, a mouthful of a name.  Translating to 'the vineyard that used to belong to the house', this is a reference to the old stone house that sits next to the vineyard.  It's 95% Garnacha Tintorera, and it's a gloriously pure, elegant, deep, minerally-complex, spicy and (sorry to use this word) Burgundian beauty.  This is positively lovely stuff.
