About Divergent Vines
"The story of divergent vine is about an underdog, an outsider, an unknown-non-traditionally trained winemaker trying to make it in the crazy wine industry.
My road less traveled inspires me to create natural wines from lesser known grape varietals, tell the stories of vineyards they come from, and provide a unique interpretation of varietals you might be more familiar with...all done with non-intervention winemaking techniques.
So pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass, and come along for the ride. It's bound to be a journey of epic proportions.

Vino Naranja - Cacique Maravilla
Bio Bio - Chile
Spending 2 months on skins, it is slightly bitter yet floral and smokey and usually a little juicy as well. It's also old vines in volcanic soil which add lovely complexity. For being a deeper orange, it's surprisingly light on the palate!
Pairings: Asian Food, Picnic Food, Spicy Food
Serving Instructions: 45°- 50°
About Cacique Maravilla
Manuel Moraga Gutierrez is the owner and winemaker of Cacique Maravilla, a winery focused on traditional and non-interventionist Chilean wines in Yumbel in the Bio-Bio Valley of Chile’s Southern Regions. Manuel is the seventh generation of the Gutierrez family to call Yumbel home, and at least the fourth generation to tend vines. His great, great, great, great, great grandfather, Francisco Gutierrez Gutierrez, arrived in Chile in 1750 from the Canary Islands in search of gold and eventually amassed enough treasure to acquire land in Yumbel, some of which has remained in the family and is still owned by Manuel Moraga today. Francisco Gutierrez earned the respect of the local indigenous Mapuche people and was given the nickname ‘Cacique Maravilla’ (roughly translating to ‘Magnificent Chief’).
Pinot Gris - Mt Yengo

White wine with a green hue, but peachy aromatics. Balanced flavor with a clean, crisp finish. Crispy pear with white peach!
