Vigno is a project created by a small number of producers in Chile's Maule valley which preserves their heritage vines of Carignan. The vines are head pruned and dry grown, and are also very old. There is a purity to these wines, and Bouchon has a light touch in the winemaking which allows the sense of place to speak for itself. A rich wine, but not at all heavy.

The Country

Chile

Chile

Chilean winemakers will tell you that this country is an almost perfect environment to grow wine grapes: a favourable climate, that has its fair share of cool, warm and hot spots, allowing for a wide range of styles and varieties to be grown. It is relatively pest and disease free, due to having the Andes on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, and of course it has the legacy of Spanish culture. It has somewhat made Carmenere its spiritual home, but aside from that variety there is a huge array of others grown here from the Rieslings of Bio Bio to the Syrahs of San Antonio, and all shades in-between.
