The place is called Quino, a little village in the South of Chile that means "between two rivers". Quino is far, far from the traditional border where wines are produced in Chile. It's valleys are guarded by five ancestral guardians: the volcanos Tolhuaca, Lonquimay, Llaima, Sollipulli y Villarica.
A small plantation of vines 8 years ago was the beginning. In this land of volcanic origin -that belonged to the family for years- rose the challenge of working with a viticulture of little intervention in a place with more than 900mm of rain per year and heavy frosts, that allows to grow a great Chardonnay and a splendid Pinot Noir. More Burgundian than Chilean...wines too.
The land of the South talked about its aptitude for the vines: the quality of the fruits of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay defied a enology that rescued the identity of the wines more for their origin than by their strain. Here the skies are limitless, the horizon measures itself out as far as the eye can see. Amidst the Andean peaks three ancient volcanoes, stand and watch over the SoutherMost vineyards in Chile.
Quino is different than Chile's Central Valley. Here a long vegetative period gives us great citric notes, also minerality and earthy notes from the volcanic soils. If you look for tropical notes...don't drink us.
