     WINE

    The vineyard

    Located in the world-renowned Colchagua valley, Our vineyard has all the natural elements required to produce high-quality grapes. Nestled at 700 meters above sea level in the Andes, it benefits from a higher exposition to the sun which gives the fruit a more vivid color and softens the tannins.

    The vines grow in a coluvial soil and are exposed to a great temperature variation between day and night due to the cooling mountain effect. These challenging terroir factors are improving the complexity of the fruit's taste which will, in the end, result in a more refined wine.

    Tumuñan 2017

    To create our second wine, we also took advantage of the incredible fruit from our own vineyard and some syrah, both from the Colchagua Valley region. The result is an elegant wine with notes of plum, earthy aromas, leather, wild berries and herbaceous flavors with a touch of aging in medium weight red toasted oak barrels with soft tannins and little alcohol.

    Tumuñan Cabernet Sauvignon/Rosé 2018

    Our Rose is from 2018. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the mountain range and has a light pink color. You will taste notes of citrus, grapefruit and minerals. Perfect for a warm day on the terrace or to pair with seafood/fish.

    First harvest - Tumuñan Gran Reserva 2016

    Our very first wine is made of fruit sourced from two different locations in the Colchagua region of Chile. First, the Cabernet Sauvignon is from our very own Tumuñan vineyard and then some Syrah, which comes from the clay soils of the Marchigue region of the Colchagua Valley with its cooling coastal winds, was added to Tumuñan's harvest. The fruit was hand-harvested and de-stemmed directly to small lot fermentation bins with three daily punch-downs. After pressing off the skins in a traditional basket press, the wine is aged in 225 litre French oak barrels for 15 months prior to preparation for bottling.

    The result, an aromatic nose with floral red fruits typical of a cool climate Syrah. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings the leafy notes, earthy aromas, leather,  wild berry and herbal flavors with a touch of toasty oak barrel aging. The flavours are red licorice and sour cherry with herbal spice. Elegant medium weight red blend with spicy tannins, low alcohol and nervous acidity with a clean refreshing finish. This wine should age well up to 10 years but is should drink best at 2 to 4 years in the bottle.

    San Fernando is the capital of the province of Colchagua, in central Chile, and the second most populated urban center of the O'Higgins Region. Located close to the Tinguiririca River (a tributary of the Rapel) in a fertile valley, San Fernando sits 339 m (1,112 feet) above sea level. Founded in 1742, it became the provincial capital in 1840.

    Culture

    San Fernando is famous for its rodeos, thanks to its location at the heart of the country. The surrounding area yields wheat, forage crops, rice, legumes and grapes. There is also a brand of Chilean wine called San Fernando. Both the Pan-American Highway and Chile's main longitudinal railroad run through San Fernando.

    San Fernando is located at the northern tip of Chile's Colchagua Valley. This region is popularly known as the heart of Chilean agriculture. Here you can find the "wine route" which will take visitors on a journey from San Fernando to Santa Cruz, visiting some of Chile's most traditional vineyards.

    Some major attractions in and around San Fernando include Casa Silva, a hotel, vineyard, and winery. Hacienda Los Lingues, a traditional Chilean-style, colonial home of a hacienda "patrón" or owner that has been turned into a hotel and restaurant. The hacienda offers horseback riding adventures into the Precordillera of the Andes.

    Most major producers of fresh fruit for export are located in and around San Fernando. These include: Frusan, Unifruti, and Agricola Panagro. Within the orchards and farms of the region one can find almost every type of fresh produce; from citrus to premium quality fresh cherries.

    San Fernando is also the point of departure to begin a trip to "Las Termas Del Flaco" (The thermal baths of Flaco). Flaco can be reached by travelling east of Ruta 5 on the road to Puente Negro. "Las Termas" baths are open from mid-December to April and are located in an area famous for its large populations of Tricahues, a type of native parrot, and fossilized dinosaur footprints.
