Another highly original wine in a beautiful mouth-blown bottle from Banyuls-based genius Manuel di Vecchi Staraz. Ullamp is the name of the beautiful mule that helps in this vineyard, where Mourvedre grapes grow wild over schist in the mountains above Banyuls. True to both grape and place this is wild and wonderful, with firm tannins and plenty of dark, mysterious fruit and a beautiful mouth-blown litre bottle means there is plenty to go around.

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.
