Alvaro de la Viña

Years of Participation

In 2013, Alvaro started Selections de la Viña with his wife, Ana González. Originally from Sevilla, Spain, the pair began importing wines from the southern region of their native country, focusing on the fresh selections with immediate appeal that they loved as opposed to the super ripe, over extracted Spanish wines that they felt had dominated the market. Today, Selections de la Viña now works with more than 50 producers from across the Iberian Peninsula and South America that practice minimal-intervention winemaking and conscientious farming. It also highlights lesser-known regions and their indigenous grape varieties.
