Germán Blanco (Quinta Milú)
- Ribera del Duero, Spain
Quinta Milú is young winemaker Germán R. Blanco's tiny operation in the small town of La Aguilera, in the province of Burgos. Blanco calls his estate a "micro winery" and eschews modern winemaking techniques and international varieties. From old Tempranillo vines, he makes wines aged in different types and sizes of casks and barrels.
Quinta Milú is named for Germán's adorable baby boy, Lucas (pictured right), whom they lovingly refer to as "Mi Lu" or Milú.
Please visit our La Bicicleta Voldadora page for more wine by Germàn. Germán also produces a very small amount of wines from high-altitude vines in Bierzo; visit our Casa Aurora page. These wines are very limited.
