Winemaker Isaac Fernandez has assuredly picked up a trick or two from his uncle, Mariano Garcia - arguably Spain’s greatest winemaker - who has produced some 30 vintages of Vega Sicilia, Spain’s greatest wine. Issac has worked hand-in-hand for 25 years with his uncle Mariano at Mauro, their family bodega.
