The Garage Wine Co. are an amazing inclusive, ethical wine producer from Chile who are reviving and co-operating with scores of farmers in Maule and Itata. In their words - 'We have raised a veritable posse of vineyard hands whose skills are working the vineyards the old way / the traditional way– originario. We cultivate vineyards with small vigneron partners who work with horse and plough as his family has done for generations. Some of the parcels, where the next generation moved to the city, we have opted to rent long-term creating more work for the local hands who do want to stay on the farm.'

All the wines are made by hand with native yeasts in small tanks, punched down manually and pressed out in a small basket press. GWCo is still very much a DIY operation and still tow much of the crop back to the winery in trailers behind trusty pickup trucks 2,000 kilos at a time.

There used to be only one red wine made from this vineyard - a field blend. However over the 12 vintages two distinct personalities have emerged from the plots. This bottling is now the more ethereal of the two produced. Floral, elegant and more subtle than previous years becoming deeper and more nuanced with time in the glass. Great freshness, with a blood orange note being added to the lithe red and blue fruits. Can be aged but tasting delicious now.
