Rafael Tirado

Rafael Tirado and his family built this winery in Colbun, by a lake in a remote corner of the Maule Valley. He began to plant vines in 1993 and now cultivates 5 separate sections totaling 18 hectares of vineyards within their 80-hectare property.  The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash, and his vineyards are located at approximately 1800 feet altitude. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually shaping a section as a labyrinth (laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels. Tirado’s minimalist and purist approach to winemaking results in some of the most expressive wines coming out of Chile today.
