“We often dream so big that we forget about the wonderful things happening around us every day. A surprise trip, that song that took you back to your childhood, or the strange coincidence of finding love… in the end, miracles are just extraordinary events – and life is full of them. It all depends on you. You can keep waiting for that big event that might change your life, or you can toast the here and now, and make the miracle happen yourself.” ~Vincente Gandia Winery.
Just as the name implies, this wine is a miracle, a perfectly well-crafted blend of four exciting varieties, each of them contributing something magical to this wine. The final product is placed in a unique bottle to make the tasting experience even more transcendental. This 2019 Vicente Gandia El Miracle No. 3 Blanco is a very limited wine.
Vicente Gandia, the founder of this winery with the same name, was a businessman with a visionary mind. In 1885, he approached the wine market with the intention of producing and commercializing them. Many years and a series of unfortunate events later, Vicente Gandia is recognized as one of the best estates in Spain, and one of the 46 most profitable wineries in the country according to the Plimsoll ranking.
Currently, this family business is directed by José María Gandia Perales, who has managed to consolidate the company and raise the quality of the wines, as well as create new labels of innovative and fresh wines for the young audience.
In the region of Utiel, is located Hoya de Cadenas, the estate where Vicente Gandia’s beautiful wines with Mediterranean character are produced. Here, the family oversees the production of wines from some of the most recognized appellations in Spain such as Utiel-Requena, Valencia, Alicante, Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rías Baixas, Rueda, and Cava.
The estate is comprised of over 400 acres within a microclimate blessed with calcareous clay soils and a Mediterranean climate, resulting in beautiful, elegant, and fresh wines. The vineyard is managed in a sustainable way, certified by ISO 14001. They are fully committed to the environment, implementing the use of renewable energy, reducing packaging, controlling water consumption, among other practices. The vinification cellar is equipped with modern and advanced technology.
This winery has attracted the attention not only of some of the best wine critics in the world but also of some renowned celebrities such as the 7-time champion of Formula 1, Michael Schumacher, who has confessed to being a fanatic of their wines.
The wines have also appeared in important Hollywood films like Mystic River and Girl Gets Girl, and they have participated in the charity project called "Whatever it Takes", a campaign that allocates funds to different causes such as poverty alleviation, conservation of the environment, or protection of children. In this project, the winery collaborated with some artists like David Bowie, George Clooney, Penelope Cruz, Pierce Brosnan, and Coldplay.
