About Viña TIPAUME

Cachapoal Valley, Chile

We’re a small vineyard with ungrafted plants and no irrigation, plus an undergound winery in the middle of it. We produce around 12000 bottles per year: Grez and Sous la Terre (fermented and aged in small clay amphoras) and Tipaume (made in intégrales oak barrels). Our winemaking takes place at very low temperatures (below 10-12 ºC) with long skin contact (8 months for Grez, and 4-6 months for Tipaume). Fermentations last through Christmas most years. All our operation is fully Demeter certified.
