Antiyal is a family winery founded in 1998 with the aim to craft wines of origin under organic and biodynamic viticulture. It was the first garage winery in Chile and a pioneer in sustainable farming.
Alvaro Espinoza produces one of the most coveted wines in all of the Maipo Valley. His conversion to biodynamic farming in 1998 propelled him to the top of winemaking in Chile, and his successes have secured his place as one of the foremost authorities on expressing the potential and importance of the terroir in the Southern Hemisphere. His celebrated wine Antiyal is often referred to as Chile's first "garage wine". Antiyal is located at the foothills of the Andes in Alto de Maipo in the town of Alto Jahuel.

Grapes are hand harvested in full ripeness and are manually selected before crushing. The tanks are feed by gravity. Small scale process (4 to 5 tons by day), with minimal handling. Grapes are fermented in small stainless steel vats (2 to 5 tons), the fermentation is done with native yeast only, with soft pumping over and a long maceration of 25 days before pressing. After pressing the wine is racked to French barrels, 50% three years old, and 50% four years old where the malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is aged in barrel for 10 months. Wine is racked every four month and is not treated with fining agents.
TASTING NOTES: This wine expresses the pure character of the Maipo valley, with aromas of herb, eucalyptus and garrigue. It has great freshness and good acidity due to high elevation, with fine tannins.
