El Impostor was first produced in 2014 when Juan decided to experiment with a particularly vigorous parcel of Cinsault. The grapes come from a two-hectare organic parcel of 20-year-old Cinsault vines planted on granitic soils with quartz and schist. Hand harvested and de-stemmed, the grapes see 24 hours of skin contact before pressing. The juice is fermented dry and spends two months on the lees before being bottled with additional grape must (in the case of the 2021 vintage, the must came from a small amount of Pais). The fresh grape must causes a second fermentation in 500ml beer bottles. Unfined, unfiltered and absolutely delicious.

El Impostor is dry, sparkling Cinsault that positively glows with bright pink color. It’s tart and tangy with a sour cherry note that is similar in appearance to a Lambrusco Rosato and similar in flavor to a sour beer or a piquette. As it says on the label: “Like a beer, only not a beer… it’s El Impostor.”
