Attilio & Mochi Winery, High Quality Wines Reflecting their Terroir
Attillio & Mochi Winery was founded by Marcos Attillio and Angela Mochi, a Brazilian couple, both food engineers who have been in the wine business since 1999. In 2011 they planted a small vineyard with eight varieties, including the first Grenache in the valley, and had since then been crafting high-quality, cool-climate wines that speak to the terroir. Their hands are in every part of the process, from vineyard to bottling. They care for the environment and are sustainable focused and are active members of the Independent Vintners Movement.
Traditional Grape Varieties at the Winery
Attilio & Mochi Winery produces wines with traditional varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Roussanne, Viognier, and Grenache.
Winery with Environmentally Friendly Practices
The winemakers believe that Casablanca is a very young wine region. There is room for experimentation, which is why they make pure varietal wines, an orange wine, and Dilcefuerte, a fortified Malbec and Syrah blend in a port style. Because the winemakers and the estate owners are sustainability-focused and eco-minded, the vineyard is irrigated using solar energy produced on the property.
The vineyards of Attilio & Mochi Winery are organic and fertilized with compost produced with winery by-products; water is saved, and most products used are upcycled.
Because of their passion for saving the environment and only using environmentally friendly practices, the winery owners have built the winery building using recycled shipping containers.
