The Cirillo family are custodians of what it is believed to be the oldest continuously producing Grenache and Semillon vineyards in the world. Planted in 1848, the vineyard sits on soil comprised of deep silty sand over limestone and clay. The gnarly basket pruned bush Grenache vines are nearly six feet high. Owner and winemaker Marco Cirillo spends every moment training, pruning and nurturing each vine. The result is fruit with incredible intensity and old vine richness.
