Description and tasting notes
Atomo, the brainchild of wine designers Alejandra Ried and Malik El Khoury, blends hidden gems selected from the finest barrels and vintages. We travel across the world to bring you a defiantly joyful expression of each country; its terroirs and cultures; through their wines.
The idea is to make a great wine in a disruptive way, we strongly believe that the best wines are made by blending and that this is where we can add value. When wineries blend they are limited to the wines that they produce and need to do the best they can with what they have. We decided to remove this limitation by letting the different winemakers do the wine in their best possible way and then select the wines that we like and blend them together.
In each country the process is pretty much the same, we start by travelling around the country to taste “raw” wines from different wineries with a focus on small producers, micro-terroirs and small batches. We taste monovarietals of multiple vintages that are vinified and aged in different ways, most of the time we taste barrels but sometimes it’s amphoras, tanks, concrete eggs, etc... We then select the ones that we believe could be blended together and collect samples. With the samples from all the wineries we start blending blind, once the blend is done we discover who are the wineries that have been selected and we get the amount of liters we need from each selected sample. Of course, since the wineries that provided their best wines to make that blend are what made it all possible, we showcase their names on our front label for the world to know.
Following the success of our award-winning wine in Chile, Atomo has arrived in Lebanon to showcase the country’s finest terroirs.
