Vineyards

The grapes come from our estate vineyards in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago in the Maule Valley. The soils are derived from volcanic ash and consist of sandy to sandy-loam earth. The vineyards are flat and receive an excellent exposure to sunlight. The yields are carefully controlled so as to produce concentrated and elegant wines.

Climate

The Villa Alegre region of Chile has a Mediterraneanstyle climate. Winter rains are plentiful and summers are dry with marked temperature variations between day and night, thereby allowing the grapes to obtain superb tannin development as well as excellent aromas and colour concentration.

Vinification

The red grapes were harvested by hand at the middle of April. The must is fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging from 26° to 28°C during a seven-day period. Prior to bottling, the wine is stabilized and filtered carefully to keep all the fruit.

Notes From Our Winemaker

Our red wine has a light ruby color.
The smell has a fresh fruits and plums.
Elegant with good balance.
Its tannin are soft and mature.
A great choice to match with red soft meats, spaghetti or soft cheeses.

チリワインは15世紀にスペインの宣教師がここにたどりついたことで生まれました。

カトリックの宣教師たちは、ワイン作りに最適なチリの気候条件に目をつけ(おそらくその効果を楽しんで! ) ぶどうを発酵させ、ワインづくりを成功させました。

これらの初期のワインが生産されたワイナリーは、その後Bodegaza(ボデガサ)として知られています。

Chilean wine was born in the late fifteenth century when Spanish missionaries arrived here.

These Catholic priests, adapting well to the perfect climatic conditions for wine making (and perhaps enjoying its effects!), became masterful in fermenting grapes into wine.

What we now know to be wineries, where these early wines were produced, were then known as Bodegazas.
