Deep cherry-red wine with plenty of depth and aromas of black fruit compote with notes of spice. This is an elegant wine that is smooth and silky in the mouth and has a warm long finish. Will pair beautifully with roasted pork belly and any meat tapas dishes.

Background

Sir Nick Faldo is one of Europe's finest golfers with 6 Major Championships and 11 Ryder Cup appearances. The former World Number 1 is the highest individual points scorer in Ryder Cup history. For his contributions and service to golf, Nick Faldo received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II in November 2009. Sir Nick is the only living British golfer to receive such an honour.

Sir Nick has always had a passion for great wines and through the years, he's had the privilege to be exposed to many. He wanted to create a European range that encapsulated his love for the wines and regions that he's encountered over the years. The wines have been selected from some of the best vineyards across Europe, resulting in a range that is accessible, diverse and a reflection of his personality.

The Faldo Shield - the six stripes in claret and green represent his 6 Major Championships in the order of their win: Claret Jug, Green Jacket, Green, Claret, Green, Claret, Claret, Green. It is a golfer's story, a piece of history, a celebration of championship moments and the winner who created them.

Winery

Produced by award-winning Bodegas Baigorri where the winemaking process is completely driven by gravity. Built 105 feet underground, the winery harnesses gravity to avoid the use of pumps or mechanical methods of any kind that might damage the grapes or wine. The winery is as much a work of art as the wines it produces.
