Santyuste, Esmeralda García
After working alongside some of Spain's top organic winemakers, Esmeralda García decided that it was time to head home and start her own venture. Cultivating with only one variety Verdejo, she manages just under 5ha of land in her home town of Santiuste de San Juan Bautista. The dry climate and sandy soil here is well suited to her organic practices with no pesticides or herbicides being used. Esmeralda also lets the grapes speak for themselves with no chemical additives added in vinification.
The Labels represent the diversity of the soils found on her 4 different plots and each wine has a distinct individuality. Santyuste is from the 4 vineyard sites.
