Here, he meet his is wife Lorena. Together, Vina Laurent aim to express their passion, to make wines with the soul and with their own identity. They also follow strict quality control based on French standards.
Grapes for this come from 150 years-old ungrafted vines in Chile’s Southern Itata Valley. Hand picked, fermented naturally with wild yeast in open top barrels and aged for 11 months in 900 litre barrels.
Supple, fresh and smooth with bright fruit and aromas of red cherries and violets, as well as some caramelised, earthy undertones. Just the right amount of crunch making it cheerful and drinkable with or without food.
Wild yeast, minimal intervention, vegan/veggie.
