Wine Description

The essence of each individual is their soul.

This is the essence of the project undertaken by Bodegas VIRTUS, its best expression, and its inspiration.

We wish to produce beauty in the broadest sense, conveyed through balance and described using its own unique expression.

ALMA de VIRTUS is what we wish to communicate to whoever wishes to commit to produce an honest, loyal and present wine, an expressive reference of the history of this magical land.
