A set of twins, the 3rd generation of a winery nestled in the province of Barcelona, had a dream : make wine fun again by creating original and enjoyable wine concepts.

Artisans of Vermouth
El Bandarra was born in 2014 at the 100 year old Casa Berger winery. After decades of making vermouth in bulk for small neighborhood cellars, the Virgili brothers set out to bottle their own brand

A drink crafted with quality local wines and Mediterranean botanicals in the most refreshing way. El Bandarra sums up all the good things of Barcelona which is in turn its inspiration : The weather, the long days, the living and its exciting mix of tradition and modernity. A refreshing & smooth drink with a perfect bitter-sweet balance.

La Sueca
La Sueca is the return to nostalgia. A trip to the beginning of debauchery and democracy in Spain. The bottle takes us back to summer in a Benidorm campsite in the 70s, times of friends and to the first family vacations in crowded cars. It is the memory of those wonderful summers concentrated in a colorful, friendly bottle full of winks to the time of uncovering.
