Renán Cancino makes very traditional wine in a small town called Sauzal in the Maule region. He works with vines that are up to 300 years old and produces wines without any modern technology, spraying or sulphites. Fermentation takes place in outside lagares, destemming is manual using a bamboo salander, natural yeasts, and a gentle press using rocks (placed on top of the grapes). Renán studied agronomy and gained experience in a co-operative before setting up on his own in Sauzal - drawn to the area for its cooler climates and granite-based soils. He produces three wines, and his País is among the best in Chile, in his own words, “My País is for the dinner table, not the terrace.”

  1. Huaso de Sauzal Cariñena

    A brilliant example of what happens when you make a wine with no sulphur. Earthy, with slightly rustic aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with some earthy, slightly grainy tannins and with great acidity.
