Meet the Producer - Lar de Maia

We have a special announcement for our third tasting of 2024. Taking a short break from our Discover Spain Series, we are delighted to instead feature a Meet The Winemaker Tasting. For one night only we will be joined by Lar de Maía’s owner and winemaker, Maria Burgoa.

Lar de Maía are one of Spain’s ‘new kids on the block’, but they’re not without some serious heritage. Maria and her sister Irene have spent their lives in wine and decided in 2015 to start their own project. Wine, as we know, starts in the vineyard, and Lar de Maía have some of the oldest vineyards in the area. They specialise in old vine fruit, with their vineyards being aged between 80 and 100 years old.

Not only are these vines old, they’re also grown at high altitude and on poor soils. All of these factors contribute to low yielding, concentrated, and incredibly high quality fruit. Maria’s philosophy is one of minimal intervention and allowing the wines to speak for themselves.

We have been working with Maria for 7 years and we have seen Lar de Maía continue to gain recognition and go from strength to strength. These are very special wines that speak of The Old Spain in The New Way and we are thrilled that Maria can join us to share her story as we taste these examples of living viticultural history.

A welcome drink will be served,  Maria will be presenting her range of 5 wines  paired with dishes from our kitchen. This tasting will sell out quickly so book early to avoid disappointment.


This is part of our new regular Spanish tasting events series, with many more to come. Keep your eyes on our website and social media channels for future dates.
