Top Scoring Wines from an Exciting Chilean Terroir

Alto Cachapoal is a stunning Chilean micro-terroir within the Rapel Valley located in the foothills of the Andes. The climate is Mediterranean, the soils are alluvial, and the altitude is 2,000 feet. Wines from Alto Cachapoal have intense color and aromatic concentration, a bright acidity, and restrained tannins.

At Lagar de Bezana we only produce a limited amount of wine from our single vineyard. We believe that making wines is an art, which is represented through the drawings on our labels by famous Chilean artist Bororo. The owner is Rene Piantini and the winemaker is Benjamín Leiva; general manager Daniela Rojas has been President of MOVI. The modern winery is gravity-fed, and is surrounded by 130 acres of estate vines. Lagar and its winemaker were prominently featured in Wine Spectator in 2013 and in Wine Enthusiast in 2018.
