2021 Gigi - Hacienda Guadalupe

The Hacienda Guadalupe Estate

- Established in 2008, Gaby Melchum and Daniel Sanchez have created a multi-dimensional project with not only estate-grown wines, but also one of the best restaurants and hotels in the region.

- Their estate vineyards are located adjacent to their winery on a northwest facing slope near the valley's end at 1,100ft elevation. Their 4 monovarietals, are small batch wines that originate from their organically farmed vineyards.

- The Syrah and Grenache that make up their delicious rosé are sourced from the prestigious vineyards of Joe Malagon in the ejido of Francisco Zarco in Valle de Guadalupe. Lower lying (900 ft) with a soil profile containing a higher percentage of sand than clay, Malagon's vineyards are known to produce grapes with a good backbone of acidity, lighter skins, and brighter fruit flavors.

 

Total production: 7 wines, 2,000 cases
