Terroir Exclusivo
2020 | 750 ml

We contemplate our terroir as a guide that shows its magnificent geography connected to the essence of the vineyard. A real invitation to the exclusive universe of the riches of each terroir. Located in the region of the Serra do Sudeste Gaúcho is the municipality of Encruzilhada do Sul. The relief formed by a plateau with smooth undulations, added to the soil profile of granite origin and the soft nights, results in wines of unique character and great liveliness.
