Marc Isart was the head winemaker at Bernabeleva west of Madrid which led him to be one of the founding members of Commando G alongside Dani Landi and Fernando Garcia.  Deciding to step out of the limelight Marc started his own Domaine: La Maldición. The village of Valdilecha sits at 700m with Marc’s old, red Tempranillo vines at 780m and indigenous white variety Malvar vines at 730m.  These vines are notoriously difficult to work (and reach), which is where the name La Maldición comes from, meaning ‘The Curse’.

 

Marc implemented biodynamics at Bernabeleva and so it is no surprise that he works his own estate in exactly the same way.  

Tinto de Valdilecha is from 60-105 year old vines and is a blend of the red and white varieties that Marc works with.  Both varieties are co-fermented for 20-25 days and then part aged in cement and part aged in 300l used French barrels.
