"Jóse" and "Mígue" (not José and Miguel), are two brothers from the Island of San Fernando, in love with their land and with the world of wine and its elaboration. Both of them changed their chemistry degree for that of oenology, they went to travel the world to learn (California, Chile, New Zealand, Italy...) and then return to their homeland to give shape to their dream.
From this dream their first wine was born: MAHARA, with 91 points in the Parker guide; Now, two years later and with the success obtained with their first project, they decide to create a new wine: AMORRO.
With foreign varieties, good wines can be made but we like to say that this is like a Japanese person singing flamenco, who can sing very well, but it is not the same as with a gypsy from the Callejuelas".
The Callejuelas gypsy, the one who "has mamao eso" is the autochthonous variety, planted in a soil, acclimated to a climate and expressing a place. "That is our intention when it comes to making wine. Because what it is about is that the wine itself says where it comes from". But to achieve this result, the first and foremost thing is "to be little interventionist in winemaking and little make-up artists in ageing".
This is the philosophy of the "Mahara brothers", as they begin to be known.
When I ask them about the name of the wine, they tell me that they named it that way because "it's how you drink in the winery", explains Jóse.
