J. Bouchon 'País Viejo'
notes from the importer:At a Glance
- Bordeaux based family that has been growing grapes in the Maule for 4 generations.
- With the help of Pedro Parra and a full study of their soils, J. Bouchon has re-invented their lineup of wines.
- Their Pais Salvaje or "wild Pais" is a truly natural and wild wine as the grapes are not cultivated and grow wild in their natural habitat up trees!
Bouchon Family Wines began in the late 19th century when young viticulturist Emile Bouchon left Bordeaux, France for Chile. Today, Julio Bouchon and his children carry on their 4th generation family winemaking tradition in the Maule Valley. With their in-depth soil research alongside terroir-specialist Pedro Parra, Bouchon is preserving the historic character of the Maule Valley with distinctive, terroir-driven wines.

These head-trained Pais vines are planted on very old soil of granitic, sandy loam formed by Chile’s coastal mountains. Pais Viejo is 100% naturally-vinified using century-old winemaking techniques, including the use of the zaranda (a structure made of sticks to destem the grape clusters). The grapes are hand harvested and fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks to preserve the wine’s authentic expression of terroir.
