About Vinyes Tortuga Tinto Fruita Analogica

Vinyes Tortuga Tinto Fruita Analogica is made from a blend of 90% Cabernet Franc & 10% Xarello farmed organically with some biodynamic
techniques on schist & slate soils. Grapes are hand-harvested, 3-day maceration on the skins, fermented with native yeasts, and pressed into fiberglass tanks and old neutral barrels. Aged for a few short months after harvest on average before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and zero SO2. 5,000 bottles produced.

About Vinyes Tortuga

Dido & Jurriaan are a Dutch couple who share many passions but most importantly, they both love wine. They’ve traveled across the world making wine ultimately settling in the Alt-Empordà region of Spain, where through a crowdfunding campaign they bought 10 hectares of planted vines in the natural reserve of Albera. They live amidst their vines where their home and winery are completely self-sufficient using solar power and drawing water from their well.

They’re currently farming Garnacha, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tannat, and Barbera. All of their work in the vineyard is done organically while their wines are made without additives in the cellar.  2018 marked the first vintage making wine from their own grapes focusing on restoring the vineyards, converting them to biodynamics, and grafting to other (white) varieties.

They’ve worked for big industrial companies as well as for small boutique wineries but it was their time with Joan Ramon Escoda that really changed their approach to winemaking and introduced them to the world of natural wine. There they learned that in order to make good natural wine, they learned that the focus needed to be on the vineyard, working as naturally as possible to produce high-quality grapes.

The names of the wines derive from album titles or songs that they often listen to. Vintage 2018 marked the birth of JUICY, Hunky Dory, Hurdy Gurdy, Mojo Pin, Sugar Magnolia, and Magic Potion.
