There will also be an expansion of the artisan beers offering different flavours,” explained Garijo.
For the launch of this new project, Antigua Casa de Guardia has worked with master brewers Daniel Torres and Jesus Garcia, who will be responsible for the development of different types of beers. “We begin with a monthly production of 500 bottles. We embarked on this new project because we believe in it and because we want new generations to get to know the winery and the wines we make and that if they want they can also try other products. We have spent years doing the best we know, our wines. However, we are now becoming more daring,” says Garijo.
