The País vines are planted near San Javier, south of Talca in the Maule Valley, at 95 meters above sea level and 85 kilometers from the Pacific coast, in granite-dominated, clay-loam soils.
The vineyards are home to more than 100-year old ungrafted and unirrigated vines. Age-old harvesting methods passed down from generation to generation, respect for nature and good, old-fashioned farm work are put to work on these human-scale vines that yield the quality fruit which is later crafted into good wine.
