Our wines are truly handmade and not overly manipulated. At the winery, we use de-stemmer equipment only and do not crush the grapes thereby eliminating broken seeds in the must. This gentler form of grape processing results in softer tannins, and a better expression of the varietal flavor and character of place or terroir.

Mesa Grande Corazón wine is carefully crafted in a traditional style, not filtered nor cold stabilized, thus it is likely the bottle may contain a small amount of harmless sediment. So, go find that wonderful cut-glass family heirloom in your hutch – decant and enjoy!
