Manuel found this vineyard abandoned a couple of years ago, worked hard to return it to its former glory and is now reaping the rewards. It's a field blend of roughly equal parts of Grenache and Carignan from a beautiful vineyard. The soils here are slightly heavier than elsewhere in Banyuls, meaning the wine is a little more full and softer round the edges, though never losing sight of where it is from.

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.
