CASA DE PIEDRA
It was born as a family-inspired project in 1997. The main idea was and it will always be to obtain wines that are characterized by their ‘origin’. In our production we have sought to show the elements that make up the place where the grapes are grown.
Since we began this peculiar adventure, 17 harvests have been through our crushers. So far, we have brought out 15 harvests that try to reflect an oenological sensibility to the context. By maintaining a scale that allows us to take care of each bottle and stamp on it the personality of the land it comes from, our commitment is to translate the tastes and experiences of the land we live in through the wines we offer.
