This great respect for the environment is combined with state-of-the-art technology to venture into otherwise unchartered territory. Trapiche pioneered innovations such as the introduction of French varieties, the use of French oak barrels and the production of micro-terroir wines.

Wine unites family, friends, and special moments.”
