Eduardo Soler started Ver Sacrum in 2012 after spending some time in the Gredos, in Madrid, and falling in love with the mountain Garnacha. An avid mountaineer who has had a career managing and running ski resorts in Argentina, he decided to start making wines, all from Rhone varietals. His idea is to make fresh ones, with lower alcohol and lighter skin contact, not exactly what Argentina has been known for. His wines ferment from native yeasts and there are no corrections, no filtration, or pump overs. The winery currently sources from two different vineyards in Barrancas (Maipu) and Los Chacayes (Uco Valley) where they have  planted Grenache, Monastrell, Carignan, Roussane, Marsanne, Mencia, Syrah, Teroldego, and Nebbiolo.  
100% hand harvested Grenache Noir from a single vineyard in the Los Chacayes IG within the Uco Valley.  Grapes are 25% whole cluster and undergo semi carbonic maceration for 14 days and fermentation in concrete eggs. Aged 50% in concrete eggs and 50% in French Oak.
