Garage Wine Co, Colchagua Valley
Derek Mossman, his wife Pilar Miranda and Dr. Alvaro Peña are producing wine towards the "natural" spectrum - All wines are fermented with native yeast, see no additions of any kind, very little new wood, and are low in sulfites. Punch downs are by hand, and pressing is done in a small traditional basket. You may notice slight variation in bottle thickness and shape if you were to open up cases, as Derek Mossman takes recycling to the next level and actually reuses, bottling in salvaged used wine bottles in partnership with a recycling company located near the winery. Derek is also the founder/President of M.O.V.I. (Movimiento de Viñateros Independientes), Chile's exciting, fast-growing association of vintners.
