Appellation: Valle De Malle
Estate: Renán Cancino Abarza’s parents were from Sauzal, along with his great-grandparents, making Renán the fifth generation of his family to live in Sauzal. Renán’s ancestry goes back to the Spaniards first arriving in Chile. The village’s history goes back to it’s founding on January 10th 1780. Then mostly aristocratic families owned the land. Today the population is 800.
Wines made the old traditional way, naturally and with little technology, and just a little of the culture that Renán has developed in his years of working as an enologist, have developed into the house style for El Viejo Almacen de Sauzal.
Renán later went back to Europe to gain a better understanding of the natural wine scene there. During this last trip Renán became committed to making natural wine. He makes wines of origin, steeped in culture and tradition and designed for gastronomical pleasure.
