Keep it natural, baby.
20% Marsanne, 40% Grenache and 40% Syrah, this charming rosé is sourced from two vineyards: Los Chacayes, 15 acres of clacareous river stones planted in 2011 at 3600ft of elevation, and San Martín, 12.5 acres of sandy soils planted in 2004 at 2600ft. The fruit is entirely destemmed; the Marsanne and Grenache are co-fermented over 15 days with about 6 hours of skin contact during the press cycle, while the Syrah was direct-press with a 20-day fermentation. Only native yeasts were used. The wine was aged in concrete vat for 3 months before bottling with a light filtration.
Eduardo Soler and two friends started Ver Sacrum in 2012 with the concept of growing and vinifying Rhone
Varietals. Their winemaking ethos focuses on fresh, low alcohol, lighter skin contact, native yeast, honest,
and easy drinking wines. All grapes are hand harvested and most are foot crushed as they believe in
minimum intervention in the vineyards and winery with no corrections, filtration, or pump overs. They
currently make wine 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. Eduardo is an avid mountaineer who has climbed multiple famous peaks and worked ski patrol in
Aspen and Mendoza for many years. He currently manages a small ski resort 2 hours outside of Mendoza.
Eduardo came into wine after returning to Mendoza and befriended some of the more adventurous growers
who desired to explore the potential of alternative varietals. “When the old sent their young to found new
villages, bringing grape vines to start new vineyards, they gave off by a ceremony called the sacred spring
or Ver Sacrum. Since then, the Ver Sacrum is a symbol of the new tribe, new art, new vine. We renew this
ancient vow, with the audacity create something new. This is our Ver Sacrum”- Eduardo Soler
