Minimal intervention wine, no additions or corrections were performed. Grapes are harvested early to maintain good acidity and low alcohol. Grapes are crushed and destemmed. Fermentation is carried with skin and seed contact at low temperatures, with light punch downs performed twice a day.

Post-fermentation maceration was performed for an extra ten days (twenty-four days of skin contact total). 

No filtering or stabilization was performed. Wine clarification was achieved by dropping the temperature a few weeks before bottling.

Fernanda is a Baja native who received her M.S. in enology, ampelology and viticulture after attending university in Montpellier, France. She started her wine career working at the lab at Tenuta Rapitala in Sicily and then worked as a cellar intern at Domaine La Criox Montjoie in Burgundy. Eventually she returned to work alongside Camillo Magoni as his assistant winemaker at the Magoni Estate. Pouya is a project that reflects the culmination of years of training and hard work combined with the desire to participate in the expression of her heritage and love for Baja's terroir. The name Pouya is an homage to her great grandfather, a French scientist that fell in love with Baja.
