Daniela Lorenza and Jose Luis Gonzalez Bastias are the couple behind of one of Chile’s oldest, continuously family owned heritage Pais vines. They naturally farm 4 hectares of seventh generation Pais that was planted over 200 years ago. Their land is on the southern shore of the Maule River close to the coast of Consticucion, in the Western Maule Valley. Their soil is river stones on top of a granite bedrock. The winery and cellar are on property, and many Chilean vignerons have spent time lending a hand here. Gonzales Bastias produces rare examples of age-worthy, estate-grown, natural, handmade Pais-centric wines. They have historical and cultural relevance to Chile and are a reference point for Chilean Wine.
