Overview

Tumba del Rey Moro is an absurd vineyard. It has all the appearance of the aftermath of an ancient landslide with several small natural terraces irregularly planted with vines. Until a few years ago the site was nearly inaccessible and overgrown with scrub brush. Yet when Dani and Fernando heard rumor of this plot they spent several months trying to locate it and clear a path so they could farm it. Here you can find a similar granitic sandy soil to their other sites but with more pink than grey granite as well as more quartz. Like its siblings it is pale in color but tasting it makes you wonder if this is what Marcel Lapierre could have done at Chateau Rayas had he the chance.
