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.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE NAME?
This is a criollo—Chilean creole—wine, because it is based on varieties that have been present in the vineyards and culture of southern Chile for many years and tended by many rural hands.
