Koyle is the new project of the Undurraga family (Max, accounts; Alfonso, sales; and Cristóbal, viticulture and winemaking). They have sold the company that bears their name and bought a lovely estate near Los Lingues, called Viña Koyle, in Alto Colchagua to make fine red wines which are really putting this sub-region of Chile on the map.
Cristobal, better known as Toti, is the first of the five generations of the Undurraga family to take on winemaking. He cut his teeth seeking out and learning different styles of winemaking and viticulture around the world, working in Napa Valley, Australia, Bordeaux and Mendoza, before finally returning after seven years and settling in Los Lingues where he has now set himself the challenge of converting his vineyards to biodynamic viticulture so as to best express the unique terroir of the region.
Join Toby Morrhall, The Society buyer for South America, and Cristóbal as they discuss what makes the wines of Viña Koyle so special, with an emphasis on Chile’s national grape, carmenère, which excels in Cristóbal’s hands.
Whilst this event does not require you to buy specific wines, if you would like to ‘taste along’ as you listen, a selection of his wines are available here.
