Bodegas Arráez

Valencia, valencia Spain

Bodegas Arraéz, located in Valencia, was established by local growers in 1916 to enable them to vinify their own harvest. In 1950, Don Antonio Arraéz bought this property and it has been in the hands of the Arraéz family ever since.

The vineyards are 90 kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea at 600 - 800 metres altitude, something which gives freshness to the grapes grown in this hot region. The winery has 30 hectares planted with predominantly red varieties. The Vivir Sin Dormir comes from a certified organic vineyard in Jumilla, while Mala Vida comes from a sustainably farmed vineyard with vines which are around 15 - 30 years old. All of the grapes are hand-picked.

'Mala Vida' means the bad side of the good life and the playful label depicts a draughts board of sin. It is a fruit-forward blend of 30% Tempranillo, 30% Shiraz, 20% Monastrell and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is fermented in stainless-steel tanks and then aged in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for eight months to add depth and roundness. 'Vivir Sin Dormir' (to live without sleeping) is made from organically grown Monastrell. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks and kept for four months in a mixture of French, American and Hungarian oak, which add spice and complexity. Both of these no-fuss wines offer easy-drinking pleasure, with 'Mala Vida' having more complex berry fruit and structure and 'Vivir Sin Dormir' having bright plum and cherry fruit with smooth tannins. These are perfect wines for tapas or on their own after a long day.
