According to the Latin American Herald Tribune, “Actor Antonio Banderas is making his debut in the wine business by acquiring half the shares of Anta Bodegas, which produces wines under the Ribera del Duero label, as well as extra virgin olive oil.”
According to the article, Anta Bodegas has a production capacity of 1.5 million bottles per year and sources its grapes from 235 hectares (590 acres) of estate vineyards.
The Anta Bodgeas individual bottle names sound more like Audi models than wine names, but I must say I’m into it. The winery is located in Villalba de Duero in the Spanish province of Burgos. The current Anta Bodegas line up is as follows:
ANTA a4 – 100% Tempranillo
ANTA a10 – 75% Tempranillo, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet-Sauvignon
ANTA a16 – 75% Tempranillo, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet-Sauvignon
Ficha Tecnica Anta Rosado (rose) – 80% Tempranillo, 20% Merlot
Datos tecnicos “a” de Anta – 75% Tempranillo, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
