La Yunta

The Spanish words, "La Yunta" signify a pair pulling together for a common cause. This pioneering project was created in 2001 by Elixir Wine Group founder/President, Kirk Ermisch, and his winemaking friends as a way of showing the world the excellence and crisp, lively balance of the Torrontés grape. Because of the frequent migration of Galician workers from Spain to Argentina, wine historians used to believe that Torrontés was originally from Spain. But recent DNA studies have concluded that the Torrontés in Argentina today is not related to the variety in Spain.
