Pais is a red grape variety of great historical importance. It was the first Vitis vinifera grape variety to be exported from the Old World to the New World in the 16th Century. In this take, blended with Carignan it offers comforting warmth and charming fruit. LA Cueva was born as a collaboration between Les Caves de Pyrène with winemaker Luca Hodgkinson with the goal of making an organically grown (but uncertified) red from old vines and vinified with natural yeasts. We like it very much, for its deliciously raw character.
