Story

These vines are 2 kilometers inland from the Bío Bío river. The granitic soil has its origins in the volcanic activity that defined the costal range called Cordillera de Nahuelbuta, which translates to “Cougar’s Land,” or Tierra de Pumas in Spanish. The wine itself is appropriately named due with its complex, fruity and meaty character.
