PHILOSOPHY

It is a great challenge and also a pride to be able to work with a nature’s product, as it is wine. As no other, wine expresses the sun, the earth and the labour of men, and at the same time is symbol of our culture and existence in the quotidian life as well as in the spiritual.

Behind every bottle of wine we offer there are plenty of stories of sorrow and glory… fear of the summer rains, long hours of hand-harvest below the sunshine, and joy when the wine ends its fermentation and we see that our goals are achieved. We see our wine is born as a beloved child, and conduct it throughout its life until reaching our customer’s table.

We count with cutting edge technology, but those are nothing but soulless machines. From the shovel of the farmer up to the most complex bottling line are just tools that -in expert hands- can transform this precious treasure as the grapes in powerful wines that join us in a good dinner or in a nice conversation with friends.

At Antawara we are blessed to have these people who, with their work and passion, give life to our wines.

We firmly believe in a clean and environmental friendly production. We privilege the manual harvest above mechanical: thus, we can ensure our grape will arrive the cellars without damages to be transformed into wine. Then we use the best available supplies to ferment and obtain fruity wines, with intense colours and elegant aromatic notes according to each variety and each terroir.

A strict quality control in all the steps of the process ensures our customers an impeccable delivery not only in the wine quality but also in the outstanding packaging we use for our wines.

CENTURY VINEYARD

Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cinsault

D.O. MAIPO VALLEY

This special blend of Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault is produced from bush vines of 100 years old vines. Dry farming vine bushes is an old growing practice introduced in Chile by Spanish Conquerors five centuries ago. Grapes result in thicker skins, rich in aroma, color and tannins product of the concentration of nutrients due to low yields.

Grapes are hand harvested early in the morning and macerated in cold temperature before fermentation. After the fermentation ends, this wine is aged in French and American oak new barrels for a period of 12 months, resulting in a strong and bold wine, rich in aromas of plum and strawberries marmalade, vanilla, chocolate, tobacco, black pepper and cassis, all together framed in a nice toast and wood aroma of oak.

We recommend enjoying this wine at 18ºC using a wine decanter. Ideal pairing roasted lamb, grilled veal and duck.
