THE ADVENTURE

Free Wines Made by Hand

These wines are the result of more experimental work on behalf of our winemakers. They are bolder, more daring wines made without having to follow pre-established rules. They are our enological adventures that surprise and impress for their diversity, innovation, and quality.
We invite you to share this experience that has been bottled with love and freedom.

THE ADVENTURERS

THE BELÉN GROUP’S MOST OUTSTANDING WINEMAKERS PARTICIPATE IN THIS ADVENTURE, TRANSMITTING ALL OF THEIR PERSONALITY AND STYLE TO EACH OF THE WINES THEY MAKE HERE. THIS WAY DANIELA SALINAS, IRENE PAIVA, RICARDO BAETTIG AND JORGE MARTÍNEZ, AS WELL AS MATÍAS AND JUAN PABLO MICHELINI ARE IN CHARGE OF CREATING THE PORTFOLIO THAT IS THE SHOWCASE FOR ‘MORANDÉ ADVENTURE WINES.’

Jorge Martínez
Mancura Enological Director

Memories and nostalgia for the 1960s, when very basic tools were used to produce a wine that combined the rustic variety País with a bit of Malbec, which was called ‘Terciopelo’ (velvet) for its soft, smooth texture on the palate.

Ricardo Baettig
Viña Morandé Enological Director

Vigno with a “G” from Carignan is the name of the appellation in the Maule Valley’s dry Secano Interior that draws on the heritage of its old vines and traditions, and whose main grape is Carignan. Morandé Vigno is a blend of Carignan, Syrah, and Chardonnay from old bush vines planted in the coastal drylands of the Maule Valley.

Michelini Brothers – Zorzal

Starting with the idea that fear is the prison of the heart, the Michelini brothers decided to realize their dreams and achieve freedom. So they created Bestiario, a wine made by co-fermenting Malbec and País from old vineyards in Pencahue in the Maule Valley. The result is a wine that is half-forbidden and half-revered.

Ricardo Baettig
Viña Morandé Enological Director

Creole draws on the rural reality of its origins through the grapes that go into it. The Cinsault and País grapes from the dry Secano Interior of the Itata and Maule Valleys are strongly tied to the culture and tradition of the zone. The dry-farmed head-trained vineyards grow naturally, and the grapes often touch the ground.

Daniela Salinas
Despechado and Tirazis winemaker

Here is the reflection of the delicacy, rusticity, simplicity, and honesty of Pinot Noir. It was discovered when no one believed in it, but Despechado was strong and shone in its own right. The grapes were macerated without being crushed and then fermented in concrete eggs with wild yeasts and then aged in old clay amphorae. The result is a wine that found the love it was looking for.

Cristián Carrasco
Winemaker El Padre

CABERNET FRANC, THE PATRIARCH AND FOUNDER OF AN EXCEPTIONAL LINEAGE, HAS BEEN EMBODIED IN ITS ILLUSTRIOUS SON, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, FOR CENTURIES. THE ELEGANCE AND DEPTH OF ITS UNIQUE CHARACTER EXTENDS OVER TIME, MAKING IT ROBUST, POWERFUL, AND INVITING.

Irene Paiva
Vistamar Enological Director

The grapes used to make El Gran Petit may be small, but the concentration of aromas and flavors they contain is enormous. A blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this wine is fermented in concrete eggs that lend it its essence and spirit, generous aromas and flavors that led us to conclude it is a ‘little giant.’

Matías Michelini
Zorzal Enological Consultant

It all began in an abandoned vineyard in the Maule Valley, where Matías Michelini discovered a paradise gone wild. It was love at first sight, and he immediately accepted the challenge of vinifying the old-vine Malbec grapes. He threw the standard protocols and methods to the wind, and the result is a miraculous wine called Malmau, a playful combination of the words Malbec and Maule.

Ricardo Baettig
Viña Morandé Enological Director

THIS WINE IS THE RESULT OF A CREATIVE COMBINATION THAT REFLECTS THE FREEDOM TO INNOVATE AND EXPERIMENT. A BLEND OF RED AND WHITE MEDITERRANEAN GRAPES IN A TERROIR FAR FROM THEIR BIRTHPLACE, LOCATED IN THE SECANO INTERIOR OF MAULE VALLEY.

Daniela Salinas
Despechado and Tirazis winemaker

Tirazis, whose name refers the Syrah variety’s origins in the ancient kingdom of Persia, begins on hillsides of Cerro Algarrobo on the Belén Estate in Casablanca. The grapes come from vines grown the old way—head-trained, natural, and free.
