MacRoberts & Canals Bodegas y Vinedos
South African winemaker Bryan MacRobert started MacRoberts & Canals Bodegas y Vinedos in Rioja in 2013. While respectful of the long tradition of this region, he crafts original wines that see less oak and are very drinkable thanks to their varietal expressiveness and freshness.
