About the maker
Leo has worked all over the world, has a Masters in terroir and is a geology fiend; driven to bringing the soils of Itata, Chile to the world.
Leo's business model is simple, developing long-term relationships with a small number of traditional growers, paying them well, picking early and practising minimal fiddling in the winery. Itata Valley was once a very famous wine-producing region. The first vineyards in Itata were planted around the 1500s near the bay of Concepción. Today, however, the Itata Valley represents a forgotten viticulture region in Chile. The likes of Leo, as well as others are out there, are certainly doing their best to revive it.See the Leo Erazo collection here
