The Producer

About El Grano

"""The Domaine is planted at 3200 vines per hectare, the grape varieties are Carménère in red and Chardonnay in white. Chile is the only country in the world whose vineyards are not affected by phylloxera. Many explanations have been put forward but none has been 100% validated.

So the mystery remains. This unique characteristic allows the Domaine to favor mass selection over clonal selection, and therefore to maintain authenticity in the final product, as was still the case in France 150 years ago."" - El Grano"
