Alberto Rubio, the owner and winemaker of Fluxus, is among a growing list of young winemakers that are helping to push the region to new heights. In addition to his own project that was launched in 2006, Alberto currently serves as the winemaker for a slew of other well-regarded brands such as Vinicola La Trinidad, Bodegas F. Rubio and Viñedos Malagon. He was previously instrumental in crafting the wines for Baja Cult winery, Mogor Badan.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Alberto recently created two new brands, “Cuatro Ninas” and “Ballena Tinta”, which will soon be available in the U.S.
Both Fluxus wines are produced primarily from grapes sourced from old, dry-farmed vineyards that adhere to organic practices. Because of this, his production is generally limited to approximately 400 cases of each wine.
