10 successful years of Auma

Since the beginning of Koyle, our family wanted to make a wine that would be the maximum representation of the expression of Los Lingues vineyard, at the foot of the Andes Mountains Range, in the Colchagua Valley. This is how in 2009, we launched the first harvest of AUMA, a wine based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, which since its beginning sought to capture our respect for tradition and admiration for innovation, obtaining recognition from the most important critics worldwide, and with an evolution in the bottle that proves to be a world class wine.

At Koyle, we bet on the Simonit & Sirch pruning method

The arrival of low temperatures is a warning for growers that the pruning season begins. At Koyle, we are preparing for this task, which is crucial for the health and longevity of the vines. This season, and for the fourth year, we will apply the method learned from the Italian specialists Simonit and Sirch, a conservative pruning that avoids the deterioration of the vineyard and whose basic principle is to respect the flow of the sap in the plant.
