Brief Description

About 4 Monos (4 Monkeys) is a group of four friends that fell in love with the Gredos mountains. Husband and wife Javier García and Laura Robles work as winemakers, while David Velasco looks after the numbers and Cadalso de los Vidrios-born David Moreno lends his family’s vineyards. Javier García happens to be the brother of Fernando García, winemaker at Marañones and co-owner of Comando G. He is also technical director at Jiménez-Landi, a Garnacha producer in the westernmost area of Gredos, and consultant at Viña Somoza in Valdeorras. They grow seven hectares, five of which are their own. Vines are located in the village of Cadalso de los Vidrios except for a plot in San Martín de Valdeiglesias which is destined to their single-vineyard red La Danza del Viento Molino Quemado. They also monitor five additional hectares tended by local winegrowers in Cenicientos, a village nearby. All of their vines are grown on granitic soils. They advocate for whole-bunch fermentation, minimal extraction and the use of big barrels and foudres to avoid oak flavours. As a result, their Garnachas are fresh and particularly juicy. Production was tiny since their first 2010 vintage, but in 2016 they have reshaped the business to reach 35,000 bottles favouring a Burgundian approach. The current entry-level 4 Monos (around €15 on its last 2015 vintage, 7,000 bottles) will be replaced by the regional red 4 Monos GR10. Retailing at around €9-10, it is named after one of the most spectacular walking trails in the Iberian Peninsula –the GR 10, connecting Lisbon with Valencia, which crosses through a couple of their vineyards.
