Meet Your Maker - Alvar de Dios

MEET YOUR MAKER

On Tuesday, June 19th, Alvar de Dios will be hanging out at Midfield pouring a whole bunch of his wines. Flights for days! Join us for a super casual evening —- make a reservation for dinner or simply drop in for a drink and hang out with the man himself. This is a non-ticketed event…but we recommend reservations if you’re coming in for dinner. Kitchen closes at 11pm. Drinks flow until Alvar passes out from jet lag.

ABOUT ALVAR DE DIOS

Alvar was born and raised in the village of El Pego near the southern boundary of the D.O. of Toro. His family had tended vineyards in the village for generations but Alvar didn't stay in Toro to learn his trade, rather he fell in with a pair of vinous rebels working in the Sierra de Gredos - Fernando Garcia and Dani Landi. While working as the cellar master for Fernando at Bodegas Maranones, Alvar began acquiring vineyards of his own in and around his native D.O., splitting his time between the Gredos and Toro.

From the outset, Alvar wanted to create a very different Toro wine. Thoroughly rejecting the almost gaudy profile now associated with Toro wines, Alvar has turned tradition on its ear by converting his vineyards to organic viticulture, then spent three years experimenting with his wines to produce a style that is refreshingly acidic, with aromatic depth, finesse and outstanding balance.
