About the Producer

Formerly known as "Cerro La Barca," Juan Sojo and Ángel Luis González are like brothers from another mother. One minute they’re arguing and the next they’re toasting to another harvest. They studied oenology together and ever since have been making wines together. Ángel Luis comes from a background in agriculture while Juan comes from a background in science. Both so different, but yet complement each other so well.

Together they want to prove their homeland’s winemaking potential and in doing so have recovered one of the region’s forgotten varieties: Eva de los Santos. They control and source grapes from 38 hectares of vineyards (some over 80 years of age) and have become the only organic wine producers in all of Extremadura.

Following biodynamic principles and taking advantage of the night’s cooler temperatures, they reap their harvest under September’s full moon. Every grape cluster selected passes through their hands guaranteeing the highest quality and allowing them to limit the use of additives in the cellar.

“Making good wine requires patience. The problem with larger producers is that as soon as their tanks are filled up, they have a long line of grapes waiting to be deposited. It makes being patient impossible.”
