Tech Sheet:

PRODUCER: Our goal is to produce unique wines from our families’ vineyards with the utmost respect for their terroir and the concept of the harvester and his traditional winery. For this we want to personally pamper the grapes and be fully in contact with the process in the winery from the harvest to the marketing of the wine, something that is complicated on larger scales.
