200 year old Pais vineyards, that are now Biodynamic, and then aged in amphora. How many can say they have ever had a taste of a wine from that old a vineyard!!
Daniela Lorenzo and Jose Luis Gonzales Bastias are the couple behind one of Chile’s oldest, continuously family owned heritage Pais vineyards. They biodynamically farm 4 hectares of seventh generation 200 year old Pais vineyard that was planted over 200 years ago. Their land is on the southern shore of the Maule River close to the coast of Constitucion, in the Western Maule Valley. Their soil is river stones on top of a granite bedrock. The winery and cellar are on property, and many vignerons have spent time lending a hand here. Gonzales Bastias produces rare examples of age-worthy, estate-grown, natural, handmade Pais-centric wines. They are steeped in historical and cultural relevance and are a reference point for Chilean Wine.
