Overview

Tumba del Rey Moro is an absurd vineyard resembling 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. When Dani and Fer 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 similar granitic sands as in their other sites but with pinker-hued granite and 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 Château Rayas had he the chance.
