People: Eduardo Soler, Owner & Winemaker
Eduardo Soler and two friends started Ver Sacrum in 2012 with the concept of growing and vinifying Rhone varietals in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. Their winemaking ethos focuses on fresh, low alcohol, lighter skin contact, native yeast, honest, and easy drinking wines. All grapes are hand harvested and most are foot crushed as they believe in minimum intervention in the vineyards and winery with no corrections, filtration, or pump overs. They currently make wine from two different vineyards in Barrancas in Maipu and Los Chacayes in Uco Valley. They have planted Grenache, Monastrell, Carignan, Roussane, Marsanne, Mencia, Syrah, Teroldego, and Nebbiolo.
Eduardo, an avid mountaineer, came into wine after returning to Mendoza and befriending some of the more adventurous growers who wanted to explore the potential of alternative varietals.
About the name Ver Sacrum, Eduardo says, “When the old sent their young to found new villages, bringing grape vines to start new vineyards, they gave off by a ceremony called the sacred spring or Ver Sacrum. Since then, the Ver Sacrum is a symbol of the new tribe, new art, new vine. We renew this ancient vow, with the audacity create something new. This is our Ver Sacrum."
