Ronald Vera is a young winemaker based in Chile’s Itata Valley. Though his family has grown grapes and made wine for three generations, Ronald’s wines have reached a wider audience in recent years through a collaboration with Pablo Solis, another winemaker in the same village. VeraSolis wines are farmed organically; in fact, the steep slopes of Guarilihue preclude the use of any machinery in the vineyards. Ronald and Pablo work the vines with horses and by hand, using only natural fertilizers. Ronald’s cinsault comes from 90-year-old vines grown on granite soils. Light-bodied and well balanced, it opens to ripe red fruit and gently savory aromatics. Smooth on the palate, with cherry and red plum, leading to an herbal finish. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
