Year(s) Planted



Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Practicing organic gobelet (vaso) trained vines. Cultivated completely by hand, and grapes are carried up the mountain with the assistance of mules. The majority of the vines receive no treatments whatsoever and minimal human intervention. Many of the vineyards are planted directly into the rock (slate).


No organic matter. Decomposed slate with small a small percentage of white quartz.


Extremely dry Mediterranean climate with 120-150 mm of rainfall per year. The Axarquia is at high elevation which results in extreme diurnal shifts in the summer allowing for long and balanced maturation. Our vineyard sites are north facing.


Late harvest (partially dehydrated) bunches that are hand harvested are further dried out & sorted once arriving to the winery. The grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press prior to fermentation in 1,500L stainless steel tanks. When fermentation reaches 10.5-11% alcohol, the temperature of the tank is dropped to halt fermentation. A small amount of SO2 is added to stop fermentation.


7 months sur lie in stainless steel.


Drastic diurnal temperature shifts due to the altitude produce wines with great acidity. Honey, candied fruits, white flowers, and distinct minerality. Opulent mouth feel balanced out by bright acidity. 190 g R.S. 8 kg of grapes required to make 375 ml of wine.
