About the maker
You may remember her from the George wine label here in Australia, but Alice L'Estrange, maker, importer and distributor of traditional Chilean wines has a brand new Chilean set of wines to show the world.
Strange Grapes represents small producers who focus on healthy farming and natural winemaking. All wines come from dry-grown vineyards of traditional Chilean cultivars. Alice's portfolio represents an ancient and often overlooked, small corner of the viticultural world. We showcase producers making uniquely Chilean, pre-industrial wines, people who project centuries-old practices into the future, reviving a unique and historic culture that is truly Old World. We believe it is as important to champion organic farmers as it is to provide a welcoming market for producers inheriting degraded vineyards and who are leaving glyphosate and chemical fertilisers in the past. We champion full transparency, as such we work with a tiny amount of producers and support them in their journey beyond box-ticking organics towards true soil regeneration.See the Strange Grapes collection here
