Bodega Contador wine
Benjamin Romeo and his estate, Bodega Contador, have become a veritable legend after his wines twice earned a perfect score of 100 from Robert Parker. Upon finishing his oenology degree Benjamin Romeo went to Bordeaux to further hone his expertise, but he was quickly called home by the now-mythic Bodega Artadi, where he worked from 1996 to 2000. The rest, as they say, is history: Benjamin created the wines of El Pisón and Pagos Viejos, and he lifted Artadi to its current illustrious status. 

In 1996 Benjamin began a project on the side, making his own wine that he vinified in his father's garage and matured in a cave carved right into the mountainside, under the fortified church of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. In 2001 he chose the name Bodega Contador for what would quickly become his greatest wine and earn him the highest international praise: perfect scores of 100 from Robert Parker in 2004 and 2005. The vineyards are in the Sonsierra zone, around San Vicente, on the best terroirs of the entire appellation. The Sierra Cantabria mountains protect San Vicente de la Sonsierra from the cold, humid winds that come in from the Atlantic, and from the heavy rains that they bring with them. Benjamin Romeo's vines, which are divided among 80 small parcels, are Gobelet pruned. The best plots—El Bombón, El Bosque, La Isla, and El Sauco, to name just a few—are destined exclusively for the mythic Bodega Contador

Most of the grapes in Benjamin's blends are grown in clay-limestone soils, while others enjoy alluvial gravel, limestone alluvium, or sandy soils. Tempranillo dominates these blends with Grenache in a supporting role and, in the case of Predicador, even a 1% dose of Viura, a white grape. The white wines are primarily Viura, Grenache Blanc, and Malvasia. Every wine made by Benjamin Romeo is extraordinary, boasting great finesse, minerality, subtlety, and elegance. These are grand, pedigreed wines.
