Winemaker Marcelo Retamal (named Winemaker of the Year, 2004 Guia de Vinos, Chilean Wine Guide), is a perfectionist in every way. From crush to bottling, Marcelo ensures that each wine is handled with careful attention to detail. His precision in the vineyard and winery has earned Nuevo Mundo the title of Chilean Wine Producer of the Year—International Wine and Spirits Competition, London, November 2005.
The Maipo Valley is Chile's most well-known wine region and where Chile's first serious wines were made after vine cuttings from Bordeaux where imported during the mid-19th century. Since then, the Maipo Valley has earned a reputation for producing wines that rival those from California. The Maipo Valley is known most for producing fruit-driven and complex reds, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and is capable of making delightful, crisp, fruity whites. Maipo's warm summer days and cool summer nights mimic those of the Napa Valley and its geography shields the vineyards from extreme weather conditions.
Marcelo's expertise in winemaking, combined with the ideal conditions of the Maipo Valley, contribute to Nuevo Mundo's success at producing top quality wines, vintage after vintage. The wines are pure, clean and true to the terroir of the Maipo Valley.
