where is the winery?
The vineyard’s situtation between mountain and ocean means that cool breezes from the Pacific dry the vines in the afternoon, allowing for a high level of natural defense against molds and other problems associated with moisture in the vineyard, which are often the reason people employee chemicals. In this part of the Maipo Valley, the climate makes organic farming a real choice, and Nuevo Mundo has embraced it.
why is it a Candid Wine?
Wines in the new world, and especially in South America, often come from a dramatically different landscape than the small family farms that Candid seeks out in Europe. While the DeMartino Family is farming more land than some of our partners, they are among our “greenest”, growing as they do the only certified carbon neutral, organically grown wines from South America. Beyond their minimal environmental impact, the wines are crystal clean examples of each grape variety.
Both the Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenere are “own-rooted” meaning that they have no rootstock between the plant and the soil, leading to a different expression of the vine than can be found elsewhere. That they are such tremendous values is icing on the cake.
