We thought very long and hard as to what we would call our wine. We wanted a name that would reflect its strength and uniqueness, setting our wine apart from others. We believe Trenza is the name that will do this.
Trenza translates into English as “braid”, and refers to any object created by an interweaving or twining of three or more separate strands of one or more materials in a diagonally overlapping pattern. A braided item would be preferred over an individual strand because the braid creates a stronger, more complex, and unique item. Generally a braid is a braid. However, the colors, textures, materials and braiding style allows each braid to be unique.
Our collection of wines have been created by interweaving and blending up to four different grape varieties: the Monastrell (Mourvèdre), the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Shiraz and the Garnacha. Each of these grape varieties are recognized independently in the great World of wine for the unique characters that they bring to a bottle of wine, be its purple, deep red or ruby colors, fruity characteristics, its savoury touch, its ability to age, etc.
We believe that with the grapes we have chosen to braid together, we have taken the best characteristics that each variety has developed, and have created a strong Trenza with great personality, complexity, and uniqueness. A crafted Trenza that truly reflects the fruit, the terroir and the great potential of the D.O. Yecla.
