About Bodegas Tempore

Sustainable, organic and biodynamic women-owned vineyards, Bodegas Tempore was born from the passion for wine and the vineyard of the Yago Aznar Family. A family winery based on the experience of four generations of vine growers who know their vineyards and know that the quality of a wine has to be based on an impeccable raw material. The winery was born in 2002, when the facilities were inaugurated with the first vintage. Our vineyards are cultivated, passing from parents to children for more than four generations. Old grenache vines that coexist with modern plantations that have been incorporated into our farms, always with one premise: quality.

About Artisans and Vines

Artisans and Vines was founded in 2009 by two former Country Vintner pioneers, as an import marketing company focusing on European wines from France, Spain, Germany, Austria, Portugal and Italy. More recently the portfolio has grown to include new world wines from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, California, Oregon and New York. The portfolio has been built by passionate professionals with decades of experience who seek terroir-oriented wines from around the world. Old world Champagne producer, Poilvert-Jacques, and new world producer, Zonte’s Footstep from McLaren Vale, Australia, are just a couple of the gems in this forward-looking portfolio. Our foremost goal is to be the best partner to our producers, distributors and ultimately top restaurants and retailers across the USA.
