El Escocés Volante, meaning 'The Flying Scotsman', is owned by, naturally enough, Scotsman Norrel Robertson MW who is one of the few Masters of Wine living and working in Spain. After graduating with an MA in Politics and International Relations from Aberdeen University he decided on a change and to pursue a career in winemaking and spent several years studying and working around the world before arriiving in Spain in 2003. It was here, in the Calatayud area of Aragon, that his business, El Escocés Volante, was born.
He currently has around 20 hectares of his own vines in this area from which he makes award winning wines and in addition he has other projects further afield in Murcia, Andalucia and Galicia. He also consults for several Spainsh wineries together with import businesses in the UK and USA.
