WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS

The País grape was not historically considered a suitable variety for fine wines. A few years ago, convinced of the potential of the variety and the terroir of the region, I decided to give it a real opportunity and looked for the vineyards planted 100 years ago that we started working to produce grapes for high quality wines. With the best grapes, in the winery we carry out a vinification, aging and bottling of the highest standard. The results are an honor for me and my team. We have a wine that we call Grand País that stands out for its finesse, depth and structure. It is for me the Pinot Noir of Chile, and without a doubt it reminds me of Burgundy and its wines.
