As a young winemaker, David Marcel made his way from the French Basque country all the way down to Chile seeking to explore new terroir. While working for some of the larger Chilean wineries, he met his wife Loreto and decided to stay for good. Twenty years later, they were able to start Viña Maitia, producing delicious, value-driven wines made primarily from old país & carignan vines. David has been at the forefront of the modern país revival with his successful 2013 vintage causing many to see the potential of a grape typically sold off for bulk wine production. His carignan wines have also made a splash and we’re featuring his 2020 vintage in this month’s pass. Organically dry-farmed from 60 year old vines and aged for 6 months in concrete, this is an inviting winter warmer with spice and rich dark fruit. There are more tasting notes and pairing suggestions on the back label but to save you a few seconds: meat! (roasted, smoked or cured).
