Viña Los Vascos
In the land of Los Vascos, cultivation is at our heart; cultivating not only vineyards but our dream to transform our vast land into a fruitful eco-system producing the most elegant Chilean wines. We are free spirited but remember our heritage. Our holistic approach encompasses and protects all - from our short-legged sheep clearing weeds without devouring precious grapes to our artisans honing hand-made knives to carefully tend the vines. We embody the Chilean paradox, meticulous in our work, easy going and warm in our personality. We are independent yet proud to cultivate our community because we are stronger and happier together.

The vintage
The 2018 season came up with ideal weather conditions. It started with a normal amount of rain, creating a perfect setting for flowering and fruit set. Minimum temperatures never reached extreme levels, so we did not suffer from frosts. The main feature of our 2018 summer was a gentle climate, with heat remaining under average, which translated into a slow maturation. This crucial factor, added to the absence of rain towards the end of the season, was essential for harvesting the fruit at its peak, delivering balanced wines.
Varietals

Tasting notes
Purple-red color with a flashy garnet hue.
The nose conveys a delicate interaction between black and red fruits -blackberry and ripe strawberries, accompanied by notes of spices such as black pepper and bay leaf. On the palate it has a good structure, and thanks to the silkiness of the Carménère’s tannins it is possible to obtain a surprising smoothness.
