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