Le Paradis 2016

The cool climate vineyard that belongs to Laura and her sister Adrianna Catena feels like paradise itself to Laura.  It is lined by trees and fruit orchards, with majestic views of the Andes.  Inside the 12 Hectare vineyard, there is a little house with two tiny bedrooms and a kitchen, where Laura dreams of spending a whole month reading books-Laura's version of paradise.  The little house is affectionately named Chateau Laura. 

About the Vineyard

The tiny parcel where Le Paradis is grown was planted in 2011 with Dijon 667 Clones over two acres.    

Wine Production

The grapes from this small parcel were elaborated in 15 separate microvinifications.  All the microvinifications were fermented with indigenous yeast.  20% of the microvinifications were fermented with 100% whole clusters in oak roll-fermentor of 600L and low temp (22 Celcius degrees).  40% were fermented with 20% whole cluster in small vats of 800L and 40% fermented in small vats of 800L without sulfites until 4%V/V of alcohol.
