It Starts In The Vineyard
At Europa Village, we are dedicated to producing exceptional handcrafted wines by respecting the art of Old World European winemaking traditions.
It starts in the vineyard. It always has! To achieve our goal, countless hours are spent walking the vineyards, nurturing the vines, and hoping for the ideal combination of sun, temperature and rain.
Our dedication begins here and to achieve it, we never waiver from knowing that how our vines grow is the most important factor to crafting outstanding wines. We pay meticulous attention to every detail with the aim of allowing our terroir to express itself and letting the vines speak for themselves. The vineyards situated at Europa Village were planted in 2006 and although our vines are young, our experience to ensure their success spans more than a half a century.
In 2006, while waiting for our vines to deliver the ultimate results, we embarked on a journey of meticulously sourcing fruit grown from select vineyards with established reputations that would fullfill our core beliefs. Our dedicated team was always close at hand to ensure the gentle handling of our selections and of course hand harvesting and sorting to naturally produce wine worthy of our name.
So for now, we patiently wait as we continue tending to our core practices in the vineyards to deliver the grandest return from our terroir and until the fruit is ready to give us its peak level of energy.
