Hector and Pablo were born in Mendoza, the cradle of wine and were raised together. Their childhood and their home were always connected to a sensorial world, with aromas, ingredients and flavors that, over time, motivated them to choose the path to become enologists. As adults, they would find these familiar memories and similar passions. Since 2002 they have been dedicated to their project as a small family winey.
Cara Sucia – means ‘dirty face’ and is a nod to the winemaking brothers Héctor and Pablo’s childhood.
Cereza is a natural crossing of Muscat of Alexandria and Listan Negro grown extensively in Chile and Argentina.
This fresh red wine of Santa María de Oro, Rivadavia, was born of an old cherry pergola from 1940. Cereza meaning ‘cherry’ is a traditional Argentinian grape previously used for making deeply coloured white or rose wine locally. It is elaborated in concrete eggs, part with marcs and part without marcs as if it were a white wine.
It’s not like anything we’ve tried before but is a very drinkable wine with nice tannins, good acidity and aromas that combine red fruits as strawberries, roses and dried herbs.
Give it a bash with tuna niçoise salad, fish tacos with cilantro or herb and asparagus salad
