Since 1996, Sergio Correa has been head winemaker at Bodegas y Vinedos de Aguirre, makers of Trewa. Sergio's international resume has been important in establishing the high bar he's set for himself while embracing the new technologies that are making Chile one of the most exciting wine areas in the world.
Villa Alegre is in the Maule Valley, in between the mountain range of the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. The vineyards are planted in an area with a privileged microclimate, in that the temperature changes less than 10 degrees a day!
Names like Rothschild, Estancia and Mondavi dot the landscape just south in the Maipo Valley. This area is world-class wine country, and big names have invested millions of dollars and euros on this perfect landscape.
Our selection is a blend of half Cabernet Sauvignon and half Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon is the workhorse red of Chile. And Syrah is finding a welcome home there, as the climate and soil seem to do it justice more than many other areas.
All this firepower adds an international flair and nobility to Chile's place in the wine world. They seem to add to that reputation each year.
Our selection is a sleek, yet powerful offering with both grapes shining through. Plum and cherry are matched with earth and blueberry to form a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
