"The philosophy is to create modern Chilean wines that offer exceptional value and reflect the specific terroir from which the grapes came from. We have all the equipment and technology but it's the people that make the difference. Crafting wine is an art in which you must use all your senses"
A proportion of every De Gras Reserva wine sold goes to help the Montgras employees whose homes were affected by the earthquake in Chile
Lawson's Dry Hills
Ross and Barbara Lawson founded Lawson's Dry Hills in 1992. Their first vintage was just fifteen tonnes and was managed by Ross from the old tin shed on the property which is still standing and forms part of the winery cellar door. Lawson's Dry Hills has a very simple company philosophy: "To produce Marlborough wines of great character at a fair price"
Ninquen (nin-ken) means 'plateau on a mountain", the name given to this first and unique Mountain Estate in Chile. Antu means "Sun of" and is the name given to this exciting mono-varietal range of new wines which offer the pure expression of the grape coupled with the terroir of the Ninquen Estate. The fruit is carefully selected and handpicked exclusively from the Ninquen Mountain, located in the heart of the Colchgua Valley.
