Often times Verdejo wines are “enhanced” during fermentation by using commercial yeasts that change the flavor that Mother Nature intended; the goal with Ipsum is to highlight the purity and bright flavors of the Verdejo variety in a naked form.   

The Verdejo vines that are selected to make Ipsum, come from a high elevation vineyard located on the northwest side of the village of Rueda. This vineyard is unique because of its high content of sand and river stone in the soil, which imparts an element of vibrancy, tension and minerality that sets this Verdejo apart from those grown in sandy soils.

Ipsum means, “itself” in Latin.
