Introducing TerreLab Tempranillo
We would like to introduce a new line-up of wines. These wines are crafted by our winemaker Val Tait, in very small lots of 50 cases or less. Bottled under the label TerreLab, they reflect purely, the soils and microclimates of our vineyards and excellence in winemaking. The first offering is our bottle aged 2018 Tempranillo and our 2020 Tempranillo Rosé.
The 2018 vintage was featured in February 2023's Wine Club package.
