LA CAUSA, preservation & tradition
La causa embodies the very essence of Chilean winemaking tradition and history.
It signals the resurgence of the first varieties planted in the Itata Valley over 500 years ago.
The Itata Valley is located in the VIII region of Chile (organic). It is the largest winemaking area in southern Chile.
The valley is where the temperate north gives way to the rainy south.
It is a vast basin surrounded by numerous rivers.
The production and export of wine increased dramatically in Chile in the 1990s. By zoning the wine-making areas, mainly in the central valley, the quality of the vines has been improved.
