Terroir of PiscoLogía Pisco- Salty Wine, Briny Pisco
Vineyards near the coast are exposed to the tiny particles leftover from evaporated ocean spray droplets. Air currents carry the particles from the sea, depositing them on grape skins and the soil.
They then blend into the batch during production. Because wine is distilled only one time to make pisco. many characteristics of the wine shine through in the final product. When Distilled one time, A briny, minerally wine will create a pisco with similar descriptors.
This brackish mist is just like the natural yeasts in our vineyards in Azpitia. They are floating in the air, forming the uniqueness that is our terroir.
