CARRO BY SEÑORÍO DE BARAHONDA 2019
Carro by Señorío De Barahonda 2019 is a prime example of the soul and nostalgia that the Señorío de Barahonda wines bring to our table. We believe in these wines, beyond their price point – they truly deliver exceptional flavours, style and approachability. They’re just one family doing their best since 1925 to showcase their little corner of a vast winemaking region. That’s very cool!
This red hails from Yecla—located between the Mediterranean and the highlands towards central Spain. Days are very warm and nights are cool. The climate is very dry ensuring the vine roots go very deep in to the ground to hunt for their water. There is an almost constant breeze. Many would suggest that these are the ideal conditions for growing grapes.
Barahonda’s “Carro” has been a staple around here and at home for over a decade. There’s nothing “cookie-cutter” about it. It shines with classic Spanish flair and a supremely layered palate that leaves its quaint $17 price tag far behind. Let’s just say, there are countless reds double the price we wished tasted like this!

“Another excellent value. Not quite as good as the slightly more expensive wine we bought from the same region, but an acceptable quality at a fair price.”
Paul C. – Verified Buyer
“Smooth, complex, delicious if a bit young Enjoyed my first bottle with appetizers and friends. It was quite nice. Good bouquet, lovely colour, and complex flavours. I think it will really expand over the next few years. Given its price point an excellent value.”
