Pablo Parra manages to produce good varietal typicity from this popular grape even this far south in La Mancha. Some vineyard altitude and the cool nights help maintain the freshness and aromatics, including peach and apricot. With pleasant minerality and good acidity this really does represent value for money.

About the estate
Today, Emiliana’s vineyards total 2,812 acres covering a diversity of regions including Maipo, Colchagua, Casablanca, Bío-Bío, Cachapoal and Limarí. Collectively, Emiliana constitutes the single largest source of estate-grown organic wines in the world. To further underline their commitment to organics, the Guilisasti family engaged the skills and experience of the celebrated winemaker Alvaro Espinoza in order to oversee the entire project.
At Emiliana, the organic vineyards teem with life which provides a natural and effective defence against common vine pests. The use of chemicals is shunned, in favour of natural alternatives. Compost is sourced from used grape skins and stems. They also have hens, geese and alpacas roaming the vineyards. After more than two decades, what began as a dream, today is reflected in a complete portfolio with important national and international awards. The whole team at Emiliana firmly believe that by working with sustainable, organic, and biodynamic agricultural practices, it is possible to obtain better-balanced, healthier, and more productive vineyards, which results in better quality grapes and therefore unique wines. ‘For us, care for the environment and respect for our employees and the community are essential.’
Emiliana was also certified Carbon Neutral for the first time in 2008, after employing methods such as reducing their packaging, investing in solar panels and running their tractors on biodiesel. However, their biggest commitment is to the people that work for them: as well as being IMO-certified, meaning their staff is guaranteed a fair wage and fair treatment, they also offer employees scholarships to universities and colleges, and allotments on which they can grow their own fruit and vegetables.
