The Mas Cristine vineyards are at Collioure but their winery (for the last 3-4 years) is in the new building at Traverse de St. AndrÃ©.
Mas Cristine is part of Tramontane Wines www.tramontanewines.com
The only mention of Mas Christine wine I could find was: either sold by Surrey Wine Cellar and the "h" appears to be a typo as the picture shows a Mas Cristine bottle or in some old guides/blogs; perhaps it used to have a "h" or the typo was perpetuated.
To confirm Mas Christine is indeed part of Tramontane wines. Andy Cook is the man at the helm. He produces a broad range of wines, something for every occasion including some world beating reds. Well worth a visit.
Thanks for this. I fell out of love with Wine Palace a couple of years ago when they sold us an incredibly stale bottle of Noilly Prat.Santiago wrote:I've bought it from Wine Palace and from Escudero I think. I agree, one of the wine world's bargains, if you like salty fino sherry.martyn94 wrote:I like manzanilla: the label on â€œLa Gitanaâ€ has a spicy Andalusian lass on it, but it is still decent wine, and staggering value, though I think I prefer La Guita. But surprisingly hard to find even in (our part of) Spain. Does anyone know of an outlet in La Jonquera or points south?TonyGoodman wrote: spicy latin lasses
Iâ€™ve been trying to find the courage, for years now, to go into the giant Escudero barn at the end of the strip in La Jonquera: I guess the time has come.
It's easy to find. You go straight past the blonde, turn left at the brunette, then right by the twins.martyn94 wrote:Iâ€™ve been trying to find the courage, for years now, to go into the giant Escudero barn at the end of the strip in La Jonquera: I guess the time has come.
Take a freezer bag because the meat section is excellent value.
