Trained on espalier, the vines at this 20-year old vineyard are grown using traditional, mechanical weed management and manual harvesting techniques.
The vineyard is situated in the coastal drylands of the Colchagua Valley, specifically in the Lolol micro-terroir, at an altitude of 100 m.a.s.l. with considerable influence from the nearby Pacific coast located only 30 kilometers away.
Our vines grow in clayey, quartz-dominated soil making for a unique vineyard with the best possible growing conditions.
