"Tutti Frutti Ananas is a collaborative project between three vignerons in Collioure and Banyuls: Manuel di Vecchi Staraz of Vinyer de la Ruca, Zé Tafé of La Cave des Normades and Joachim Roque of Domaine Carterole. As the three produce very limited quantities of wine from their respective estates (the steep schist hills of Collioure/Banyuls are notoriously low-yielding), the goal of the project is to make a more approachable expression of these terroirs."
