barbuVINS News

It feels as if the year has gone by too quickly as we’re reminded constantly that the holidays are around the corner.

The past few months have been busy with the arrival of new wines from Bodegas Bhilar, a second arrival from Pago Aylés, and a first in Canada, the wines from Luis Moya Tortosa that recently made it to the SAQ warehouse.

We promised we’d have something special for the holidays? We do. See below.

Although we’re repeating ourselves, don’t forget to engage with barbuVINS on social media. For those following us on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter, your comments and references are a great help.

One last note: when you visit your favorite restaurant, if you think the sommelier should have some of our wines on the wine list, why don’t you tell them to check us out?

Thanks for sharing our passion.

LMT Wines -- Luis Moya Tortosa

Finally, we now have received cases of Urbanita, Masusta and Kimera from Luis Moya Tortosa. This is the first time in Canada that his wines are imported. Get them before they’re gone.

We were happy to serve the Urbanita 2015 on September 21st when barbuVINS sponsored the official opening of the exhibition of the works of Josée Dallaire and Linda Ducasse at Galerie LoLy.
We also poured Bodegas Bhilar’s Lágrimas de Garnacha 2015 at that event.

Details about Luis' wines can be found on our website:

We're very excited to have those wines. Many client have ordered second and third cases already, so something is going on. Don't wait as we're not sure when the next order will arrive.



Bodegas Bhilar

We have received Phincas and Phinca Lali, David's flagship wine.

David Sampedro Gil claims Phinca Lali  to be his " most complex wine", in his own words. Phinca Lali is made from Tempranillo and 12% Viura (a.k.a. Macabeo). All grapes come from a 0.3 hectare plot located in the town of Elvillar, Álava. Planted in 1910-1915, those magical vines had been long forgotten and were fortunately saved from oblivion by David Sampedro about 12 years ago. He makes less than 1000 bottles per year.

Also in stock, Bodegas Bhilar’s Phincas 2013. A stunning blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, and 5% Viura. Stunning not because it’s bold and powerful, but because it is a mouthful while retaining an impressive structure and acidity. This wine is extremely pleasant now even if you can enjoy it over the next 10 years.


Pago Aylés

In stock, back by popular demand:
Pago Aylés’ cuvee “L” 2016 (rosé)

A Spanish rosé in November? Why not, it will brighten any cold rainy day. Have it with tapas, with roasted birds such as quails, a pheasant, or a nice free-range roasted chicken.

A Spanish rosé in January? Really? Trust me, the snow will melt.

 We also received more cases of Y, É, S and Serendipia.
