Eduardo Brethauer is a journalist, writer and traveler. Author of the hilarious wine guide Vinos con Cuento. Owner and Wine Editor of Vitis Magazine. Member of the Circle of Wine Writers, La Commenda Major de Rosselló and Círculo de Cronistas Gastronómicos y de Vino de Chile. Founder of Vignadores de Carignan, a unique association of producers that reinvented a viticultural tradition of 5 centuries in Maule Valley. He doesn’t believe in scores. “They’re fuckin’ stupid”, claims. He and his brilliant collaborators are always seeking for character and identity. Their goal is to rescue and put in value wines, spirits and food treasures from forgotten corners of the world.
It comes from a vineyard of 1961, planted in the curly landscape of Ránquil (Itata Profundo). Mauricio Veloso harvests its grapes and elaborates this rustic, fresh, complex and deep Carignan, with marked notes of thyme, rosemary, cranberry, cherry and dark chocolate. We had tried other vintages, but this one surprises us with an outstanding personality. It's a scandal, a scandalously rich wine.
