Our entire vineyard is carefully tended with affection and with respect for the natural surroundings. The grapes in our Gran Verano Carmenere Rosado wine come from our own 3 vineyards in the Central Valley in Chile. The vineyards were planted on flat fields and low ridges in places with extraordinary natural conditions for the growth o grapevines.
Valle Central has a Mediterranean-style climate with a cold and rainy winter and a dry and warm summer. Marked temperature differences between day and night make ideal conditions for the growth of our wine grapes.
The grapes are harvested by hand early in the mornings in April when they have reached optimal maturity. The grapes are macerated at low temperatures during a 12 hour period, and then the must is separated from the skins to start a clean fermentation in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging from 14° to 16° C (57° to 61°F) during a twenty-day period. The wine is then placed in stainless steel tanks for 3 months before being bottled and launched on the market.
