Some old vines, Cabernet Sauvignon, with winter pruning finished. Viña Portal del Alto in Maipo Valley, Chile.
Viña Portal del Alto is situated in the Maipo Valley, one hour drive from Santiago. It is owned by Alejandro Hernández, a well-known oenology professor who has educated many of the Chilean winemakers. One of his interesting wines is a Late Harvest made from Muscat and Sauvignon Blanc.
