Voted by Wines of Chile as “Winery of the Year 2016”, Emiliana is one of Chile’s most exciting producers and pioneers in organic and biodynamic winemaking. Since 1998, this Chilean winery has been producing award-winning wines from almost 1,000 hectares of vineyards in prime sites including Casablanca, Maipo, Cachapoal, Colchagua and Bio Bio.
Its spectacular biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from across the world. Emiliana’s innovative and natural-leaning wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.
The Rapel Valley lies with the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east, and the province of Curicó to the south. This area is particularly well suited for growing Carmenère, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a transversal valley of Chile’s central zone with unique climatic conditions, including four clearly defined seasons and a unique blend of maritime breezes and Andean winds. The hand-picked grapes were transported to the winery and selected from a conveyor belt to ensure maximum quality. Vinification took place in stainless steel tanks for 3 months with selected yeasts. The finished wine was fined using bentonite and cold stabilized to prevent the formation of tartrate crystals and 1 and 0.45 micron cartridge filters were used at the time of bottling.
Pale almost Provençale,-pink in colour with gentle strawberry and red cherry aromas, with fresh summer fruits on the palate and a silky yet refreshing finish. Delicate and easy to drink.
Emiliana’s Organic wines are certified by IMO of Switzerland. No pesticides are used in the vineyards, which are worked with an eye towards increasing their biodiversity.
