Vinyer de la Ruca

Banyuls-sur-Mer, Roussillon



From a secluded spot down by the river in Banyuls, this is one of the coolest sites in the area and one of the most beautiful vineyards we have seen. A blend of Carignan and Grenache from vines up to forty years old planted over sand and schist, this is de-stemmed by hand, foot stomped and spends just two days on skins followed by a year in large old casks. Heady with berries and woody herbs, this is a wine with a wonderful sense of place.
