Manuel is at it again and this time it is Carignan from a vineyard just outside of Perpignan getting his unique treatment. This spends a couple of weeks on skins, is destemmed by hand and ages for a year in little terracotta anforas. The result is an original, crazy expression of one of the Mediterranean's truly great grapes.

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.
