OCHOA CALENDAS SERIES

The series we call Ochoa Calendas represents our young wines, where the predominant characteristic is fruit. These fresh, fruited wines suit any palate.

We took our inspiration for the name from those ancient cultures when humankind and the whole of nature were ruled by the moon, which measured time and marked the birth of new life.

For the Romans, the moon marked the Calends of March (their New Year’s Day) which, interestingly, coincides with the spring awakening of our vines, when our wine begins its lifecycle.

The slogan for this series is “The moon is always there, even if we can’t see it”. It is meant to reflect our respect for the course of Nature, which is an essential part of making quality wines.
