Marea Pinot Noir, Leyda Valley is a delighful wine, made from Pinot Noir grapes. This screwcap wine is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Vineyards are managed with the greatest respect for Chile’s pristine yet fragile environment and are Certified Sustainable by Wines of Chile. Around 50 hectares are currently farmed 100% organically. The drip irrigated vineyards are a source of water during the summer months, sustaining a level of bird, animal and insect diversity that would otherwise not be possible. From 2020 vintage all LFE wines will be vegetarian and vegan-friendly. The family is one of rural Colchagua’s larger employers and supports projects to encourage the workforce to develop and thrive, including a new 150 hectare vineyard in the super-cool Leyda Valley, the closest estate to the Pacific Ocean in Chile. New wines made from dry-grown old vines in Chile’s southern regions of Cauquenes and Itata, including orange wine from Moscatel grapes, are also helping traditional farmers sustain a more profitable way of life.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
In 1976, Luis Felipe began nurturing the gnarly old vines that were planted in the 1930s, as well as planting several new grape varieties. Today, under the control of his eldest son, Luis Felipe Jr. the company is now recognised worldwide as one of Chile’s leading producers. With 1,850 hectares of estate vineyards within the Colchagua, Colchagua Costa, Leyda and Maule valleys, Luis Felipe Edwards has grown to become the largest 100% family owned winery in Chile.
A viticultural paradise, where vines were introduced by the Spanish in the sixteenth century. A long, narrow country stretching 800 miles from the deserts of the north to the glacial south and it's these valleys and coasts that give the wine its variety.Explore Chile
