Volcanico Pais A Los Vinateros Bravos, Natural wine, 100% Pais, indigenous Chilean variety, a little funky, smokey with mulberry fruits and spice. Volcanico Pais comes from very old vine (100 years and more) grown on volcanic soil. Hand harvested, fermentation starts spontaneously with native yeast, Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. it is fermented and aged in concrete vats, the extraction is very subtle. The skins are basket pressed. The wine is then aged in large wood vessels and after 14 months is bottled with a very coarse filtration. The delicate underbrush aromas of Itatas wild grass, red fruits and a little bit of cassis are aromas and flavours that characterize this wine. A fresh wine, delicate, marked by fine grain tannins that give a very unique structure and create a long lingering finish with a distinctive mineral character due to the volcanic soils where the old vines thrive.

The old Itata Hills have fantastic potential for making wines with unique character from ancient vineyards planted over volcanic or granitic soils. After studying Agronomy and Enology at the University of Chile, Winemaker Leonardo travelled the world to gain experience in winemaking, and even did a stint studying biodynamic methods in California.
Leonardo seeks to express this terroir as fully as possible, by using organic viticulture, and natural winemaking so as to interfere as little as possible. 
The vineyards are un-irrigated and harvest done manually. Leonardo says: “We feel like we don’t need to fix nature but rather enhance her capabilities, to enhance her potential. We want wines full of life, vibrancy, tension, freshness and joy”. The wines are fascinating and have a distinct sense of place - a must try for any sentimentalists or those who are interested in low intervention.
