About Fundo El Quintanar

José “Pepe” Moquillaza is the architect of this wine. Pepe is a winegrower since 2003 when he started producing Pisco, the typical Peruvian distillate made from fermented wine produced in Peru since late in the sixteenth century.

In the town of San Juan de Ihuanco in Cerro Azul, province of Cañete, the vineyards of El Quintanar are located five kilometers from the Ocean Pacific, only five hectares planted with the Albilla, Italy, and Quebranta, traditional grape varieties that are pisqueras. A plot of three hectares is planted on a hillside with ungrafted rootstock and another plot of the remaining two hectares is planted with native grafted vines. The soil of the plots is fairly mineralized, with granite and quartz, and has a yield of about 4,000 kilos per hectare.

The Quebranta variety is a gray grape, not a red one, and using it since 2012 Pepe produces a traditional Peruvian claret, Quebrada de Ihuanco, along with his partner Camilo Quintana, with a production of 1,800 bottles per vintage that this year will be raised to 3,600 bottles.
