Using artisanal winemaking methods, Esmeralda Garcia is committed to rescuing the essence of Verdejo, respecting the identity of the varietal, the soil and the climate.

Arenas de Santyuste is a young natural white wine, with a saline character and creamy, textural volume resulting from long lees aging in stainless steel and clay jars
The vines are located on sandy soils, a fact that allows us to enjoy an authentic rarity: pre-phylloxeric Verdejo grape vineyards that are between 140-220 years old. The vineyard is located about 800 meters above sea level, in the town that gives the wine its name: Santiuste de San Juan Bautista.

Esmeralda García is a young Spanish winemaker working exclusively with Verdejo in her hometown of Santiuste de San Juan Bautista after several stints learning her craft with some of Spain's leading natural winemakers.

The vineyards she tends have been in her family for centuries where the dry, sandy soils have allowed the pre-phylloxera vines to thrive on their original rootstocks for up to 210 years. 

Esmeralda has four sites that all vary in altitude and soil composition, allowing her to bottle several cuvées with strikingly different profiles and the arid climate enables her to work without pesticides or chemical additives in the vineyard and cellar.
