Americas/Dominican Republic/Ocoa Bay

Ocoa Bay Winery

Wine Explorers' opinion

Ocoa Bay, the one and only vineyard in the Caribbean, is an exceptional wine estate established in the Dominican Republic.

The terroir

Ocoa Bay is the driest area in the country with 600 mm of rain per year. A dry wind from the ocean that significantly reduces the risk of diseases for the plant.

The estate

A little paradise, 120 km west of Santo Domingo, created by Maria and Guillermo, a very nice couple of doctors, passionate about nature, who brilliantly took up the challenge of making wine in the Caribbean.

The vineyard

Eight hectares planted in 2010 with Colombard, Muscat of Hamburg and Tempranillo. Some tests were made with Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Montepulciano, for the moment judged less conclusive.

The wines

The varieties Colombard, Muscat of Hamburg and Tempranillo give good results and produce respectively a white, a rosé and a red wine. Ocoa Bay even produces a dry white wine made of mango and passion fruit!
