The 8A series is a very special one: not only because it bears the signature of Adriana Ochoa, who now wields the oenological baton at Bodegas Ochoa, or even because they were the brain child of one of the country’s most renowned oenologists, awarded Newcomer of the Year in 2014.
The magic of this series lies in what is behind it, the meaning and the underlying concept. The 8A series brings together three generations. It is a tribute to an entire winemaking family.
This is what gives the series its name, which, like everything else at Bodegas Ochoa, is a tribute to tradition, but heavily laced with innovation.
Adriana explains that “My grandfather’s emblem was 8A. My father taught me to appreciate varietals and I have produced these wines using the latest cutting-edge techniques, while trying, in a different way with each of these wines to convey our philosophy and our love of the land and of wine”.
The investigation gen in the Ochoa Family continues in the sixth generation with Adriana Ochoa. After her work experience in the winery Yalumba in Australia Adriana fell in love with the grape variety Viognier. When she came home, she planted a small quantity of this grape to experiment with it. 2014 is the first vintage released.
Viognier 80%, Viura 20%
