Once more we obtained excellent scores in the 22nd edition of the prestigious Chilean wine guide Descorchados 2020 published by wine writer Patricio Tapia. AUMA 2015 and Cerro Basalto Cuartel G2 2017 won in the “Best Wine of Colchagua Andes” category.
Multiple vertical wine tastings were organized for our major customers and the specialized media from America, Asia and Europe to commemorate the first ten years of our great wine. With them, Technical Director Cristóbal Undurraga was aiming to showcase the consistency, seriousness and high quality over several vintages, which has put AUMA among the greatest Chilean wines of Los Lingues vineyards.
Our hard work has been rewarded once more, this time by Rebecca Gibb, New Zealander Master of Wine and wine writer for the prestigious English magazine Decanter. The wine critic tasted hundreds of Sauvignon Blancs, and the word is out: our 2018 Costa Cuarzo Sauvignon Blanc stands out among thousands of wines of this variety grown all over the world.
We continuously search for the authentic expression of a terroir through biodynamic practices. Hence our decision to join this important group. Our goal is to communicate and educate people about the advantages of this method.
The Agrupación de Viñas Biodinámicas de Chile has been created under the wing of Asociación de Agricultura Biodinámica de Chile (ABD) in conjunction with Demeter International. Some of its main objectives are to promote the culture of biodynamics, the sustainable production of wine, to provide international consultancy, to organize tastings and to promote educational opportunities.
