The Camacho and Rujero rivers, which flow down from the Andes mountains, pass through Rujero's vineyard first before continuing on to others further down the valley. This ensures that only the purest water, closest to the source, feeds our centuries old vineyard.

In the spirit of keeping it real, the name Rujero is itself steeped in Bolivian lore. Rujero is derived from the Spanish word rujir meaning "to roar." The Rujero river, which runs through our vineyard, is normally more like a trickling creek than a mighty river. However, when it rains in the surrounding Andes mountains, the creek swells into a rushing river whose roar echoes throughout the valley. This is how Rujero singani got its name.
