It all begins in the late 19th century, when an adventurous Emile Bouchon travels from his home among small vineyards in Saint Emilion in Bordeaux to Chile for a job as a winemaker. Today, 130 years and four generations later, it is the grandson Julio Bouchon S, together with his children who continue the winemaking traditions. Julio, who studied oenology in both Chile and Bordeaux, fell in love with Maule’s granite-rich soils and in 1977 he bought the Mingre State property, with old vines and a winery from the early 20th century, located in the interior of the Maule Valley. The Pais grape is originally from the Canary Islands. Salvaje means “wild” and describes that the grape grows wild and climbs up bushes and trees to seek shade and a favorable environment.
The grapes grow wild in the vicinity of the forest and are minimally treated by humans in order to give the most natural character of Pais. The juice ferments with the stems, which gives a delicious structure and herbaciousness. Vinified completely in concrete and bottled unfiltered.
Fresh, herbaceous and full of berries. Flavourful with a nice concentration of red fruit, spices and delicious granitic minerals.
