Somos means ‘we are’ in Spanish. Rather existentialist, though the wines that Ben and Mauricio craft are not inaccessibly esoteric, but rather wonderfully democratic, vibrant and, most certainly, fun. Minimal intervention, minimal volumes. Much of it sees export to South and Central America where your tanned, tangoing doppelganger enjoys them post-siesta. Be more like them: take the siesta and then party well into the evening with good friends, food and wine. Salud!
Saline, fresh, guzzleable. Lovely minerality and texture. For reference, something like Muscadet or Soave, but still very much its own thing. A great dance partner to Ceviche de Pulpo and other seafood deliciousnesses.
