The Producer

About Zumo

Zumo, a venture spearheaded by the collaborative efforts of wife and husband duo Georgia Staples and Diego Luis Perez, represents a commitment to minimal intervention winemaking. With a steadfast dedication to purity, each bottle of Zumo wine is crafted without the addition of any external agents—no yeast, malolactic bacteria, clarifiers, stabilizers, acids, sulfites, velcorin, or other additives find their way into the fermentation process. Instead, the wines undergo a natural fermentation in open-top fermenters, allowing the grapes' intrinsic qualities to shine through authentically. Following fermentation, the wines are gently aged in either neutral oak barrels or tanks, preserving their vibrant character. The resulting wines are a testament to their natural origins—alive.
