Producer Story:

Duncan is on the eastern side of the Baru Volcano, the latest geological formation of Panama, 1.5 million years ago. Eruptions up to 1000 years ago created soil plateaus and canyons that face the east and the morning sun and it is influenced mostly by Pacific rain but also with a light influence from the Caribbean rains in January. This terroir develops tropical red fruits, raspberry and cherry sweet notes.
