Pipeño wines are honest, small-scale, traditionally made Chilean wines of the most recent harvest, and also traditional method of winemaking in Chile, which dates back to the late 16th century. Often drunk by vineyard workers, they are unique to the regions of the Maule, Itata and Bio-Bío Valleys, which are among Chile's most traditional and rural wine areas. Maitía is the project of partners and winemakers David Marcel and Loreto Garau, who specialize in making light, lively, extremely drinkable wines through careful grape selection, and "Aupa" is no exception. A blend of 80% native país (or mission) grape, and 20% carignan, this is bright and clean with generous fruit. It is farmed organically and fermented with indigenous yeast. The país or mission grape was once used for sacramental purposes, and was brought to the Americas by the Spanish missionaries. It is a thin-skinned grape that creates a lighter, rustic style of wine. Organically grown, vegan.
