AOP Vacqueyras red

ÒRA is the result of the selection of the best vineyard plots, meticulous vine-growing and vinification. The wine is matured in concrete vats and new oak barrels. 

ÒRA is the iconic cuvee of La Verde and the quintessence of our terroir and vineyard.

Grape varieties

55 % Grenache, 25 % Syrah, 20 % Mourvèdre.


Long and gentle maceration in concrete vats with immersed cap. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are vinified separately with temperature varying from 28 to 30°C to preserve each varietal’s personality. Part of the Syrah and Mourvèdre wines spend a year in oak barrels before blending and bottling.
