Dos Cuates Agave Wine begins with mature agave that is harvested and cooked in large ovens to release sugars within the plant. The aguamiel or "honey water" is then extracted from the plant using crushing rollers called "molinas." The aguamiel is then fermented between 6-10% ABV. The next step is what differentiates agave wine from tequila; instead of taking and distilling the fermented aguamiel to make tequila, agave wine is then filtered and 100% de agave blanco tequila at 55% ABV is added to "fortify" the wine to 24% ABV.
It was important for us to implement time honored techniques and use only the finest ingredients to create an agave wine like no other.
