Alsatian winemaker André Ostertag refers to it as “a quest for terroir wines at the end of the world”. It’s also an adventure in friendship, a project initiated by four mates sharing their love and views of wine. It’s a Franco-Chilean alliance – all of them have lived, or are living, in France. In addition to Ostertag, the quartet comprises estate manager Julio Donoso, a Chilean photographer who lived in exile in France, plus fellow photographer Álvaro Yáñez and entrepreneur Javier de la Fuente. Together they cleared out and planted just over five hectares of vines on this pristine, dry, granitic hill in 2005.
