OUR VINEYARDS

Two intertwined dreams come together in time and space at OcoaBay. Touristic winemaking and wellness real estate, nestled in the Bay of Ocoa in the province of Azua, Dominican Republic.

More than 500 years ago not too far from OcoaBay, Hernán Cortéz arrived on the island of Hispañola and was made governor of the province of Azua. The historical records show that he planted the first grape vines in the New World, which were passed on to Mexico, and were eventually brought to South America by Diego Velásquez.

OcoaBay seeks to reclaim this primacy, reviving the practice of grape vine cultivation and the production of wines in the region of Azua. Inspired by this task, Ocoabay aims to grow fresh ingredients, free of chemicals in a sustainable way.

The sandy soil of OcoaBay, enriched by its volcanic origins, is the prefect medium for our vines of French Colombard, a white grape; Moscato and Tempranillo, our red grapes. We are currently producing high quality, organic, tropical wines. In acknowledgement of the indigenous flavors of the southern region, we have also developed a uniquely Dominican wine product, KiBay, which is a blend fruit drink made from mango and passion fruit.
