A SINGLE D.O. Wines that seek the best expression of each variety in a SPECIFIC PLACE.
TRADITION & KNOWLEDGE Pionero represents the landmark discovery and development of the Casablanca Valley.
MAULE VALLEY: Recognized as one of Chile’s MOST DIVERSE ORIGINS and home to some of the country’s oldest vineyards. Its sub-humid Mediterranean climate with soils of alluvial and volcanic origin contribute juicy red fruit and delicious rusticity to the wines.
This intensely purplish-red Carmenere offers notes of spices and fruits recalling blackberries and cherries along with fresh herbs. The palate is smooth and elegant with a touch of strawberries and red bell pepper. Very good with cheeses, fresh pastas, pizzas, and white meats.
VALLEY: Maule D.O.
“Winemaking is a trade, an interpretation of the grapes as well as the place they are grown. It requires knowledge, sensitivity, hard work, and patience to finally enjoy a product that dates to the origins of human culture. It is a very rewarding endeavor.”
Maule is one of Chile’s most extensive valleys and has the largest production of wine grapes, but the Secano Interior sector merits special note for the large number of old País and Carignan vineyards still managed using the same techniques inherited from the Spanish Conquistadors—head-trained, low density, and dry farmed to adapt to this area with hot, dry summers and granitic, red clay soils.
