Paso a Paso Organic Tempranillo

Paso a Paso means step-by-step and perfectly describes the meticulous attention that goes into crafting this range of wines from a large single estate vineyard the region of La Mancha, Finca Los Cruces. From hand-selecting the best vines growing in its famed sandy soil, to hand-harvesting followed by slow and gentle fermentations, no step of the process has been overlooked. This rigorous process results in an exquisite wine full of succulent fruit flavor and unparalleled elegance.

APPELLATION: Vino de la Tierra de Castilla
GRAPE VARIETAL: 100% Organic Tempranillo
