About the Producer
Fluxus is the personal project of Alberto Rubio, considered to be one of Baja’s top young winemakers. He currently produces wines for established wineries such as La Trinidad & Bodegas F. Rubio, all located in Valle de Guadalupe. Previously, Alberto served several vintages as the winemaker for Baja cult winery, Mogor Badan. His style was influenced by the year he spent in France working at “La Borde Vieille", Hugo D’Acosta's project in the Languedoc-Rousillon. Fluxus is a small production operation that focuses on old vines and wines that are congruent with the site and its identity. The total production is 1,000 cases. The fruit is purchased from Bodegas F. Rubio, owned by Alberto's uncle.
Farming practices: sustainable.
