Leonardo Erazo created “A Los Vinateros Bravos” winery in the heart of the Itata region (south of Chile). The vines of Itata thrive in a steep hills landscape without irrigation. Bush vines are very old in this region, and finding 100 years old vines is common here. Volcanic and granitic soil provide an extraordinary environment for root growth resulting in very healthy vineyards. Winemaking is simple, using only native yeast and cement tank for fermentation and aging.
