The low-yielding vines that make up ‘El Viejo del Valle’ come from the depths of Chile’s Central Valley – a scene of cold, rocky terroir in what was once glacial beds. Circa 2000, Eric Monnin, Burgundian winemaker and creative director of Boutinot importing, discovered this winegrowing region and fell in love. He sought out fellow French winemaker Guillaume Létang to actualize his vision of bringing wine made in this singular region to the States. Guillaume makes the wine in a 200-year-old hacienda, and Eric imports it to the US. The label is evocative of 1950’s Chilean street art and hopes to spread some of that jovial spirit to the drinker. This Pinot is gently oaked, imparting a hint of spice to accompany the lush flavors of strawberry and raspberry. 

Pairings:
