Solstício de VeranoSpanish, noun. (Summer Solstice). Observed when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky, marking the longest day and the shortest night of each year. 

Our award-winning Solsticio Torrontes is grown and hand-harvested from vineyards grown at over 2,600 feet in elevation at the base of the Andes mountains. 

Located in Argentina's La Rioja province, the Famatina Valley's sandy soils, dry climate, pure snowmelt, and dazzling high-altitude sunshine create light, fragrant wines with notes of grapefruit, green apple, melon and roses.

After a crisp opening, a floral surprise marks this quintessential Argentine Torrontés. Best enjoyed with friends and family — serve moderately chilled to appreciate its unique flavors.
