Elcha

“A peaceful oasis in the middle of Los Andes”
The legend of a young Indian princess that weeps for a long lost love is the origin of “Elcha”. Her tears are said to have formed a river in which many plants grow and therefore her name is associated with nature.
Floral and colorful the princess behind the tale of Elcha inspired a young and fresh wine to share and enjoy.
