FOLLY PHILOSOPHY

Los Insensatos is not only a commercial denomination with an engaging and playful approach that identifies a new oenological project located in DO Montilla-Morilles; it’s a statement of intent that comes from 6 friends that wish to promote a substantial change through a reformulation of the way of making and conceiving our wines: revolution starts from within/the source.
