Raúl Moreno after various experiences as a sommelier in London, USA, Australian and New Zealand, had a desire to return and do something in his home region. The opportunity arose to start a project in Jerez with a good friend, to make non-fortified wines in an authentic style. 2017 was their first harvest. They always work with organically farmed single vineyards in Sanlucar de Barrameda, Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez and Rota - ages ranging 40 years to 100 years+. All the wines use clay for fermentation and /or ageing - either in Georgian Qvevris or in Chalk (Albariza) Tinajas. Ranging in size from 300 to 1500 litres. Flor, the local vail of yeast, is always present but does not dominate.

Low intervention, white wine, racy & mineral “Crunchy, textural, loaded with pear, granny smith apple, fennel, mint and sea spray. Very salty and mineral. The body of the wine on the palate feels like biting fleshy orchard fruit.”
