ABOUT THIS WINE
“IMAGINADOR is a wine that was in my imagination many years ago, when I discovered the great potential of Itata terroir. This wine comes from 4 different growers I source, all in the upper part of the hills, over granitic soils. All the sites were planted more than 200 years ago, with vines 45 to 70 years old, and so, the vineyard share a long history. All blocks are supposed to be Cinsault, but because of the history they all are Cinsault field blends with Muscat, Semillon, Carignan and País. They are all harvest and vinified together.” –Pedro Parra
Aged in stainless steel and cement tanks for one year, then eight months elevage in bottle.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
“Pedro Parra y Familia was born in my head many years ago, but it was only after 15 years as a consultant, traveling and working all around, I felt mature enough to begin. The main idea was always the same; make pure terroir wines from Granite soils. Make wines I like to drink, and be free to select and create from several granitic terroirs. But more important, the idea is to start something that I can share with my family, my wife Camila, and my kids Diego, Felipe and Colomba. The place was also simple; Home. Today, locations as Guarilihue, Cauquenes, Florida, Ranquil, Rere, San Rosendo, all them between ITATA and BIO BIO, are still not well known in the world. They make me think to places I love, like Galicia, Barolo, Morgon, places who were old in tradition, but unknown to the world few years ago. With my project, I hope to help all those brave vignerons that protected for more than 200 years their vines, against the industrial forest companies, against politicians, against the big wine industries who abuse of them paying them almost zero for their best grapes. And I dream to see those places, and my home, Concepción, becoming the wine center of the universe.” –Pedro Parra
