Clos Quebrada De Macul is a single hillside family owned vineyard planted to cabernet sauvignon back in 1970 when it was unheard of in Chile to plant on more difficult-to-farm, lower-yielding hillside sites The vines planted there are 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a 20% blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. In the past the harvest had been sold to top wineries from across the country, becoming the most expensive fruit in the market. This has motived the owners, Isabelle and Ricardo Peña, to join forces with the winemaker Ignacio Recabarren, and an US investor to begin their own winery. Since its debuted in 1996 Domus Aurea has occupied a leading role in Chile’s recent wine history(” So rich and so intensely extracted, one sip of this young wine soaks up every last bit of moisture in the mouth only to replace it by lasting, sweet, plummy flavor” Wines & Spirits – Top 10 Chilean Reds “), appealing to site-specificity, low yields and non-interventionist winemaking. In 2003 Patrick Valette and Jean Pascal Lacaze joined Domus Aurea as consultant and resident winemaker, respectively.Quebrada de Macúl is a sheer terroir demonstration and a family: the same blood expresses strength through Alba, invites to the voluptuous elegance of Stella, and finally leads to the impetuous greatness of Domus. Three different identities, fruits of a same education, expressing very own personalities and sharing the same creed: total loyalty to a so unique essence through a perpetual pursuit of balance and authenticity. We will visit the vines and the cellar with the production facilities besides we will do a Barrel tasting of the ultra premium wine Domus Aurea.
