Somos Wines Mauricio Ruiz Cantu
“Somos, meaning ‘we are’ in Spanish, is the brainchild of two winemakers: Mauricio Ruiz Cantú and Benjamin Caldwell. They represent new McLaren Vale, as expressed through a kaleidoscope of alternative varieties, styles and intriguing flavours. The pair work primarily with less-known Italian and Spanish varieties, and they make them in entirely unconventional ways, with a lo-fi and sustainable ethos.

Somos is our plaything, experimental lofi wines and alternative varieties, and Juguette is our traditional brand focussing on Aussie classics created for exclusive export to Mexico.
