The projects of musicians seduced by the world of wine grow who choose to combine their art with their own high-end label with active participation in their elaboration.

“ I used to call one of my girls' sumajtiquita ', for one who speaks the tongue is tender,” he says, about the mark. Jaime comments that his greatest expectation is that wine does not disappoint, that it is not a song that is out of tune. “I tried two bottles with friends, for me it is a wine that sounds”, he highlights, and highlights that “it is a wine with an Argentinean flavor, which aims at friendship, to share and enjoy it”.
