Winery : Volcanic Wines from a Shifting Landscape
Our wines come from vineyards that contain volcanic soils and our aim is to ensure all our products reflect the unique minerality of each site. Chile has over 2,900 volcanoes and our vineyards are located in different valleys across the country with deeper sub-soils rich in volcanic matter which help the vine withstand high temperatures, retain humidity and offer good drainage. For us the volcanic character is an attribute which makes our wines more vibrant and richer with greater complexity in aromas and on the palate. Our philosophy is to produce wines which reflect this unique and carefully studied origin and display the purity of the grape varietals without excessive use of oak.
