If only all Banyuls tasted like this! Manuel di Vecchi Staraz is a native of Tuscany who fell in love with the windswept hills of Banyuls and decided to move here and make wines without compromise. From old bush vines of Grenache planted over steep, sun-drenched shale terraces, his is a benchmark vin doux naturel. Impossibly dark and dense, with a texture you don't often find in wines made in this style, the fact the beautiful bottle is mouth blown is just a bonus.

Vinyer de la Ruca

Manuel de Vecchi Starez is a native of Tuscany who around a decade ago moved to France to farm some extremely low-yielding old bush vines in the hills above Banyuls-sur-Mer. He’s an uncompromising man and his wines are deep expressions of this rugged terrain.
