 A blend of Muscat Ottonel, Viognier, and Ugni Blanc. Muscat comes from organic vineyards in Rincón del Cerro and Viog/Ugni come from sustainably managed vineyards in the Colorado area. Hand harvested (in February) and fermented separatly. Muscat (as with their other wines) goes into maceration with the skins for one week. The other two varieties are fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks. Wines are eventually blended and bottled unfined, unfiltered, and zero added SO2.

Two Friends, one project, and the grapes as the protagonists. Proyecto Nakkal is made by Santi Degásperi and Nico Monforte childhood friends who studied oenology together, and in 2020 started their dream of making natural wines in Uruguay. Why the name Nakkal? The Nakkales, ancient priests of the lost continent “Atlantis” guarded the knowledge, wisdom and energy of the population. Among its principles, intervene as less as possible in order to generate a natural balance and guarantee the collective well-being. An inspiration and the premise for making their wines.

The vineyards are located in two regions in the south of Uruguay, El Colorado and Paso de La Arena. Both are highly influenced by the Río de La Plata, with a distance of 15km from El Colorado, and 4km from Paso de La Arena. As for the climate, both are characterized by having clay soils, with a high content of organic matter, a cool climate, a high rainfall regime, and a moderate thermal amplitude. The style of their wines reflect these characteristics of the area, which allow them to produce wines with a lower alcohol content, light tannins, good acidity and a lot of freshness. All vineyards are managed with sustainable production protocols, seeking the greatest care for the environment and the environment, and the use of raw materials and by-products from the place. We avoid the use of any type of product that has a negative impact on our vineyard, or the ecosystem in which they coexist.
