MXN $745

Grape: 100% Pais (200 year old vines) Did we mentioned these are the oldest vines in the Americas?

Appellation: Bio Bio Valley

Wine Notes: Produced with grapes from 200-year-old vines, the oldest pre-philoxera vines in the Americas. Do you need to say more?

Following organic practices, the dry-farmed grapes are hand-harvested and fermented with ambient yeast. The result is a wine that’s both rustic and elegant. It’s light-bodied with fresh cherry and raspberry flavors, balanced acidity, pronounced earthy notes, and dry, dusty tannins on the finish.

If this is where the future of Chilean winemaking is headed, sign us up!

Good to have it with: creamy rissotto, creamy aged cheeses.

The Winery: Roberto Henriquez

A native of Concepción, Roberto – largely inspired by his Uncle – has always dreamed of making wine.

He studied as an Agronomist and Enologist, then worked for wineries in Chile, South Africa, and Canada. Returning to Chile, Roberto spent some time with local wine producers, and this experience – along with working with producers such as Mosse in France (Loire), was very important to him.

The Bio-Bio region (close to where Roberto was born) is, in his view, the most unspoiled place to make wine in Chile. The old farmers work traditionally, having never used chemicals. However, the Chilean culture doesn’t pay much importance to historic winemaking, and he felt he had to do something to try and keep the tradition alive.

While also working as a wine growing consultant, in 2015 Roberto started his project, working with traditional methods and old vines. He is now building his winery. Roberto farms 7 ha which are close together in the mountains – Cordillera de Nahuelbuta.

In Bio-Bio, there is considerable soil diversity between plots. Vine-training height also varies – Riviera del Notro at 1m high, and the Santa Cruz de Coya vines lay very close to the ground. It’s an incredible climate region with a cool spring, summers below 30 degrees, many cloudy days, and a quick transition from Autumn to Winter. Southerly latitude plays a massive part, as does the mountain topography (lots of small hills and vines situated on inclines); maximum altitude is under 400m. Roberto does the traditional winemaking style of Chile – manual destemming, gentle crushing of grapes and punch downs, only using Chilean wood (just when he bottles pipeño), and short macerations.
