Chile’s physical geography and climate are ideally suited to organic farming, being flanked on one side by the Pacific and on the other by the Andes. Viñedos Emiliana was established in 1986 by the Guilisasti family and has since grown into one of the world’s leading producers of organic wine, with vineyards in 6 regions.
Vineyard size 1,374 hectares (total). Organic since 2003.

A Gold Medal Winner at the Organic Wine Masters 2020, this impressively exotic and perfumed blend is named after the forests in which Emiliana’s winery is sited in Colchagua. A ripe, intense red with plenty of vanilla and toast from oak barriques, and some firm tannins too, along with some alcohol warmth, all of which one would expect from a top-end Chilean wine, but what I like about this flagship biodynamic Emiliana expression is the fruit. Not only is it pristine, and ripe, but varied, with sweet cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry, a touch of blackberry jam, but also some bright red berries too.
