We contemplate our terroir as a guide that highlights its magnificent geography connected to the essence of the vineyard. A true invitation to the exclusive universe of the riches of each terroir. The town of Encruzilhada do Sul is located in the Serra do Sudeste Gaúcho region. The relief formed by a gentle undulations plateau, combined with the granitic soil profile and the mild nights, result in wines of unique character and great vivacity.

Vision: Ruby red with delicate violet reflections. Clear and bright, highlighting the youthfulness of the specimen.  

Smell: Predominantly fruity, fresh red fruits like cherries and raspberries are the protagonists, together with notes of Brazilian fruits like jabuticaba and pitanga.  The nuances of white flowers, provided by the Gewurztraminer grape variety, add delicacy and complexity to the blend. The evolution in the glass reveals menthol and eucalyptus aromas, with elegant smoky presence, which is justified by the aging in medium toas French oak barrels. 

Taste: The synergy between acidity, moderate alcohol content and concentration of flavors makes this unusual red wine something remarkable for even the most demanding and refined palates.
