Boutique Wineries

The wine cellar at Albar features national and international award winning Spanish wines, that have been sourced from “family owned wineries”. The wines are from dedicated vintners, who pride themselves on quality and are of limited production. These “premiado” wines are packed full of wonderful flavours that evoke the taste of Spain.

Our selection includes, as one would expect, wines of the Rioja and Ribera del Duero.  Alongside these are a Somontano of Northern Spain, award-winning local Almeria wines, and a special Argentinian Mendoza.


The locally produced Vina Laujar is a full-bodied and intensely flavoured red suited to complementing our red meats, big game and cheeses.

For white wines the house selection is a Ribera del Duero, excellent for tapas, fish, salads and pizza.  We also offer two excellent Cavas, which are also sold by the glass, and a rosado from the Bodega of Juan Emilio Garcia.

The Red Selection

Wine from the well-known Rioja, Ribera del Duero and some award winning D.Os too!!

Terra Sara

Specially bottled for us at Albar an easy quaffable wine with a subtle complexity in the form of jammy spice and a hint of coffee. The wine is well structured with the red berry fruit of the Tempranillo grape. Whichever, way you like your “ReD” Rioja or Ribera del Duero this is Known by our regulars as the “drinker” of the cellar


“GOLD MEDAL WINNER” Mundus Vini. A Spanish Tempranillo from the Reyes Bodega. Ripe dark berry jam and savoury clove spice aromas on the nose. Dry full-bodied blackberry and cracked pepper flavours. Tannins firm and smooth to finish.


A smooth made to drink now Tempranillo. Flavours are led with dark fruits and liquorice with some woodiness and tannins. Perfect for our sharing dishes.

La capilla

This Tempranillo has a floral nose with wild berries, dark dense fruit full and polished textures. Integrated oak that has a good length and a powerful well-balanced finish.

Teofilo Reyes

An international “AWARD WINNING” wine from Ribera del Duero that features among the top of wines in its category. Very Respectable, Leading with plum and spiced chocolate. Well balanced acidity and tannins with a strong tobacco and leather finish.

Conde De Iznar

Well crafted, soft Red wine that is not too heavy- more lunchtime than dinner more light roasted meats than a game cazuela. Tasty berry fruit and spice flavours backed with soft tannins and a little of that Spanish acidity.

Gomez Cruzado the Trio

” Like Tim Atkin the “British Master of Wine”. We were so “IMPRESSED when we discovered the quality from the Gomez winery that we feature 3 of their wines in our list. The boutique winery of the Rioja Alta that brings all the ingredients necessary for creating wines of extreme high quality.

Frago Do Corvo

This “AWARD WINNER” is a Galician wine that has a production of only 15,000 bottles. Intense red colour matches the intensity of its fruity aromas of wild berries. An exceptionally smooth wine that blends balsamic with hints of marmalade enjoyed with nearly all our dishes on the menu especially the spicy pizza.

The White Selection.

Lagar del Molino

A modern white wine that quite “simply surprises” all that try it. Well balanced flavours of citric fruits and peaches. A touch of mineral and acid make it a not too dry and not too sweet either. All in all, a straightforward summer drinking wine that is great in the sunny heat of Almeria.

Cristina Calvache

Bronze, Silver and Gold medal international award-winning wine, comes from the slopes of the Almerian side of the Alpujarra’s from the family owned winery Alboloduy. Once de-corking the distinctive blue long necked bottle, the wine is bright and clean. “Taste” is a combination of sight, sound, smell and texture. Raise the glass up to your lips, close your eyes and let this crisp wine win you over!

Turonia Sobre Lias

Quinta de Couselo is a small “AWARD WINNING” winery, with a long family history, that has always been known for its love for wine. A classic Albariño from Galicia that came 1st in the FESTA DO VINO ALBARIÑO. It is creamy with intense aromas of white fruit and citrus, spring flowers and notes of aromatic herbs. Served chilled it is fresh well balanced and all it needs are the biggest glasses to drink from!


Just to put this wine into perspective it was voted “Best Albariño in the world” at the International Wine Challenge 2018. The winery is located near a 12th century monastery facing the Atlantic Sea. The grapes are picked by hand and transported straight to a cooling room that is the start of the production into a fab wine. Let us know if you have tried a better Albariño!


The grape Verdejo is often compared to Sauvignon Blanc. This family winery is located at the heart of Rueda that aims high on quality. The acidity in this wine compliments dishes of the Mediterranean diet perfectly even to a simple bowl of olives. Look closer at the label, you will see that it has been dedicated to a member of the staff. The “Hawk” that keeps away unwanted birds and other animals that are after the ripe fruits of the vines.

Rose Wine


Simple pure straightforward, un-messed -about, fresh clean, citrussy, fruity Rose Merlot from the “AWARD WINNING” winery OTAZU that is definitely-going places. Great with salads and nearly everything we serve from the “plancha”.

El Candidato

The Raspberry-pink Rose wine “el Candidato” comes from the family owned bodega “Cosechos y Criadores” (harvesters & breeders) or to put it bluntly “Drinkers or Connoisseurs”. Wines designed with quality from Castilla y La Mancha to export to the rest of Spain. A lively wine with nuances of cassis yet silky on the palate best served chilled in an ice-bucket its great to drink on its own or with any of our starters and fish dishes on the menu.
