About Manuel Moraga, Winemaker
Manuel Moraga is the 7th generation winemaker at his vineyard. Yes, 7th generation! His ancestor was a conquistador who had a wonderful relationship with the local people. They gave him the nickname Cacique Maravilla (wonderful leader.) His Pais vines today are original and over 250 years old! Today Manuel still farms the land and makes wine in an old-school way. In a time that natural winemaking is becoming popular, Manuel is doing what he always has. Kind of like your mom who never left the 80s and now tapered jeans and leggings are back in style. The style is a little crazy, but awesome.
About the Cacique Maravilla Winery
The vineyard is minimally and organically farmed, not much pruning, no tractors. In fact, the vines are so wild you can barely walk through the vineyard, let alone get a tractor through there! His Pais sees bottling before fermentation finishes. This gives the wine a slight fizz, the definition of the style of Pipeño. The Moscato goes sulfur-free and is delicious in a crazy, rustic funky way. Seven generations of Manuel’s family have worked this land. They go all the way back to the original planting of the Pais vineyard in 1740! These grapes are in fact grown on vines that are 270+ years old!
