Discover Heirloom Designated Cacao Farming in Ecuador

Vinces—heart of the historic Nacional estates of the 18th & 19th centuries. In 2006, with great optimism, a group of vinceños, small cultivators of the land decided to form an organization to boost clean agriculture,  market production,  provide training as key to improving farm productivity and the living conditions of farmers and their families.

Tasting Panel Notes

Early, mildly tart notes with an acetic and citric character. “Bright” overall with notable intensity. The woody / resinous notes of the aroma come through clearly together with a mild background astringency. In the background some dark fruit notes (citrus, cane berry, cassis) with what seems like a finish of trace nutmeg and cinnamon and tobacco spice.
