Viña Gillmore began with a dream. In the late 1980s, Chilean visionary Francisco Gillmore took over operation of the century old Tabontinaja winery and its ancient dry-farmed vineyards planted to the rustic País variety. He took advantage of their healthy, hearty roots and grafted them with fine French varieties. From the beginning his wines were imbued with the spirit of this unique dry-farmed condition of restriction and resistance in which their rustic personality was expressed with vibrant acidity and tremendous character. The project is now run by his daughter, Daniella Gillmore, whose love of the country life guides her in overseeing the vineyards and the collection of native fauna on the farm. Her husband, winemaker Andrés Sánchez, is the talented artisan behind their wines Hacedor de Mundos, Vigno, Mariposa and Cobre, wines crafted to interpret the soul of the sector and its people. Their two children, Martín and Dominga now represent the third generation of the family to stretch their roots deep into the heart of this special zone of Maule. Viña Gillmore is among the founding members of MOVI (Independent Vintner’s Movement), and Andrés was the driving force behind the recently formed Carignan Club (Vigno).

It was fermented in steel tanks using traditional techniques, pump over three times a day and
stored in barrels.

Tasting Notes
Complex Red wine flavors, raspberries and strawberries highlighted. The palate is an
interesting structure with lively acidity, this wine is dry and freshness comes from the fruit.
