Pruning is done in July at Viña San Rafael and the Via Wine Group in Región del Maule, Chile.
This group started its wine business in 1998 and now has 1358 hectares in four valleys: Casablanca, Colchagua, Curicó and Maule. Michel Laroche in Chablis has a joint venture with the group and is involved in making some of their wines. VIA offers a broad range of very good wines, e.g. easy-to-drink-wines from the Oveja Negra (Black Sheep)-label and more powerful and spicy wines from the Chilensis-label (which also has an extremely elegant label).
