History

Welcome to our Company

This natural vineyard and winery is a family venture that began in 1996 with the purchase of an 16 acres property in the small village of Cerrillos,near Rancagua in Chile. Located in the Alto Cachapoal at the foot of the Cordillera de los Andes, at around 400 meters above sea level, the terroir has profound, well drained soils of low fertility, and a very cool climate that allow a long period of maturation in autumn (harvest is in mid may, most years).

Familia Pouzet-Grez: Vincent, Valentina, Francois e Yves.

Valentina, chilena, e Yves, francés.

We planted the vineyard from scratch, without grafting (that is: "franc de pied"), and cultivate with organic and biodynamic principles. One of our essential handicap, which we are extremely proud of, is the organic certification obtained, year after year, through a german agency, BCS-Ök, and now, since 2011, with the swiss agency IMO, through whom we reached the exclusive Biodynamic certification from DEMETER.

The winery was built in 2005, underground, with the concept of very little intervention, just like in the vineyard.

Winemaker: Yves Pouzet comes from the Institut National Agronomique de Paris and has a vast international experience in viticulture and winemaking.
