Primus Vineyards

Primus comes from handpicked grapes in organically farmed vineyards. Fermentation takes place exclusively in open tanks with native yeasts, maximizing each variety's potential. This is complemented by aging in different containers -- foudres and French oak barrels -- which complete the wine's evolution and transform our valleys' best fruit into expressive wines with great elegance, balance and freshness. A perfect accompaniment to an array of gastronomic styles.
