Where The Wines Come From


Nestled in the heart of Chile, the Maule Valley is a historic wine region that has recently embraced the principles of natural winemaking with fervor and dedication. Situated in the central part of the country, Maule benefits from a diverse range of microclimates, from coastal influences to Andean foothills, providing a rich tapestry of terroir. Indigenous grape varieties such as Pais and Carignan thrive in this environment, producing grapes of exceptional quality and character. Winemakers in Maule are increasingly turning to organic and biodynamic farming methods, prioritizing sustainability and respect for the land. In the cellar, minimal intervention is the guiding principle, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Maule are a testament to the region's rich winemaking heritage, with their vibrant fruit flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the spirit of Chile's winemaking tradition.
