moritz and the res fortes team…
…are extremely hands-on and our vision is uncompromising. The Res Fortes winery in Roussillon in the foothills of the Pyrenees has well-established vines, some of which have been growing for over 80 years. The combination of these vines, the mineral-rich schist terrain and a perfect grape growing climate means that exceptional fruit is produced consistently every year.
Hand-picking all our grapes and carefully selecting only the best fruit, nothing is harvested until Moritz tastes it. Each of our vineyard terroirs has its unique qualities which dictate how we choose to ferment and blend the grapes and then age the wine.
Our methods borne of years of passionate winemaking study has brought Moritz Bak’s innovative vision to fruition with amazing speed, as recognised by experts worldwide.

Silver Medal at The Drinks Business - The Global Rosé Masters 2019 for our 2018 vintage rosé
