Chile | Aconcagua
William Cole Vineyards lies deep within Chile’s prestigious Casablanca Valley—often called “Chile’s Burgundy.” This cool climate vineyard near the coast, which is comprised of over 129 contiguous hectares, provides a long, warm growing season with cool nights to develop excellent acidity. Owned by the Martin Weinstein family, the winery specializes in cool climate varieties, and the wines are crisp, clean and complex. The winery’s primary line is Albamar (foggy sunrise over the ocean). The wines are made almost exclusively from their own (estate) fruit which is rare for the Albamar price point.
Their vineyards are located in the heart of the Casablanca Valley, in the central zone of Chile. Of temperate and stable climate, thanks to the coastal breezes of the Pacific Ocean only 40k away. Its lands of alluvial origin, franc-sandy texture, with good permeability produce a balance in the vine, making outstanding wines.
