Certified Organic100% Garnacha-TintoreraCarbonic MacerationAlmansa DO, Spain
"Ask most wine enthusiasts what the term 'carbonic maceration' means to them, and the vast majority will think Beaujolais - and almost certainly not the top-tier, cru end of the Beaujolais market. In reality, this is a process that is both intriguing and highly scientific, yet misunderstood by many...The more I delved into the subject, the greater my appreciation of the differences and variations found in these wines from producers around the world. In simple terms, carbonic maceration referred to below as "MC", relates to the process where whole grapes, protected from oxygen (normally under a veil of carbon dioxide) undergo an intra-cellular fermentation due to enzymatic reactions without the action of yeasts...It is only recently that forward-thinking winemakers are finding ways to adapt MC to craft some fascinating wines....Carbonic maceration has had a bad press in recent years but, despite being associated with the cheaper end of the Beaujolais market, it is rapidly becoming a serious tool in the kit for innovative producers around the world. Their skilled winemaking uses carbonic maceration to add complexity, accentuate aromas and flavors, while helping manage both acidity and tannins. These are wines to savor, enjoy, and contemplate how science and nature are being combined using this technique." - Decanter, July 2019

"Fabulous wines, all curated, all great prices. Enjoyed talking to a Sonoma vintner (Winery 16600) who was pouring his latest wines...Wine Stop is now my must go to place whenever I'm downtown...Go, you will not be disappointed!" Yelp.com
"Owner Alvaro Cardenas is AMAZING. I needed to send a digital gift card to someone in LA and Alvaro was patient + kind enough to work with me to get the e-gift card out. The recipient is thrilled and it wouldn't have happened without the exceptional customer service provided by Mr. Cardenas. Highly recommend Wine Stop DTLA and will be using the shop for all my LA-based wine gifting needs." Google.com
"You know when you got something good, something great, but it's TOO good, TOO great, to the point where you almost don't want everyone to know about it? That's Wine Stop to me. And that's why I struggle over writing this review. I got introduced to Wine Stop almost 2 years ago and what seemed like an eclectic destination for entrepreneurs, artists, smugglers, dancers, models, photographers, recovering pickup artists, fashion designers, filmmakers, general bon vivants, and Taiwanese people has become a 2nd home whenever I'm in LA... which is sometimes every week." Yelp.com
