Our Semillon Block Series comes from Barracks 1 and 16 of our Batuco field, one of the coldest places in the dry interior of the Maule Valley. These vineyards are 100% dry land, planted more than 80 years ago and are located only 30 km from the Pacific Ocean, which gives a greater freshness to their wines.
