Here is a note from our Chilean supplier
We harvest the grapes from prime areas of Chile such as Colchagua, Maipo, and Aconcagua. Wine magazines will detail the higher quality wines that are from these areas. The grapes usually sold in the US are from Familia Sagrada in CURICO. An example of the wines from here are Miguel Torres, good value wines, but not the quality of ours We harvest at optimum flavor development which includes better sugars and fruit development. Our grapes are picked at the time our winery partners pick for their own wines. We dont pick our grapes at the same time, for example, the Merlot will typically be ready up to 4 weeks in advance of the Cabernet Sauv, and we give the Carmenere even longer hang time.
