Pais from Valle del Bío-Bío, Sur, Chile; light bodied and dry, bright, spicy, and floral with notes of dragonfruit, ripe banana, and apple, with vegetal undertones, balanced acid, and soft tannins. Organic

100% País from several blocks of organically farmed vines in the coastal range of the Bío Bío Valley that are being recuperated. The vines are nearly 200 years old, dry-farmed, planted on granitic soils, and yields are very low (~2 tons/Ha). The grapes were harvested by hand and destemmed, then fermented in open-top plastic bins with their skins. The skins are left to macerate in the finished wine for one week after fermentation, then the wine is pressed to rest before bottling. Bottled without fining or filtering and with only a small addition of sulfur.

Paula Chodin Param and Arnaldo Batista are Vitivinícola Chodin Param, a new winemaking project in the Itata and Bío Bío valleys. Paula and Arnaldo collaborate with local winegrowers who own small centenarian plots of País and Cinsault. The emphasis is on fair trade and mutual benefit: Paula assists growers in transitioning towards organic agriculture and buys their grapes at fair prices. Rather than purchasing vineyards or planting their own, they hope to have a positive effect on the local region by assisting long-time growers, accompanying them in the vineyards, and contributing to the local area’s self-sustaining economy.
