Lamb and game dishes, where the freshness of the Baga enhances the flavors.
Small plots of vines growing on sub-zones of infertile rocky schist soils, which naturally produce low yields of concentrated healthy fruit characterized by deep aromatic intensity. After prolonged monitoring, the bunches are selectively handpicked into small boxes at the peak of tannin ripeness. All bunches entering the winery are passed over a sorting table and subjected to intensive quality control.The grapes are gently crushed and moved by gravity into temperature regulated vats. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation occur naturally with no inoculation.

The climate is typical Continental Mediterranean, where the days are hot and dry and nights are cold.
Bursting with flavor—I'll bet you didn't know Baga could have that much flavor—this has exuberant fruit, silky texture and a crisp, lingering finish. It's simply delicious. -- Mark Squires
