More About This Wine
Like so many others, Jose Ignacio Maturana saw his family house and vineyards destroyed by the 2010 Chilean earthquake. As a result, he was forced to rebuild his business and took the decision to focus on premium wines that would reflect their terroir. With that in mind, José Ignacio, former chief winemaker at Casa Silva, traveled to Burgundy in 2011 to make wine during the Chilean winter. There, he immersed himself in the techniques used in the region, aiming to understand from within how small producers were working traditionally to make high-end wines.
Jose Ignacio and his brother Sebastian, therefore, created Maturana Wines, focusing on organically farmed and hand-worked old vines (70+ years). The wine is vegetarian- and vegan-friendly.
