Overview

Romelio is a small vineyard located a few kilometers from the Mataquito River on the far western edge of Maule. Close to the Pacific and benefiting from its proximity to the Mataquito River, this is a cool site for Maule with warm, dry conditions throughout the growing season. The age of the vines, which are about 85% Malbec, and the granitic soils make for a more austere and mineral expression of fruit. The wine is named Romelio in honor of the man who planted this vineyard in 1945 and tended it his entire life.
