About Chilean Wines

Chile is a country that expands over 6,000 km from north to south and accommodates the ideal temperatures needed to grow an excellent wine-making product. The ideal placements of the Andes Mountains and the currents of the Pacific Ocean create a mineral enriched soil and exterior climate that wine grapes thrive on. Introducing frozen crushed grapes and pressed single strength juices from the prestigious winemaking regions of Maule and Curicó in Chile, this product allows the winemaker to expand their winemaking experience to other regions of the world. Set aside your heating equipment alongside your worries. With fresh products arriving in Spring each year, take advantage of the warm weather in North America and worry more about where to enjoy the wine and whom to share it with!

Fresh Juices

Grapes are selected at their optimum levels during the Chilean harvest each year. The grapes are then hand picked and crushed, de-stemmed and macerated in cold temperatures. Once the colour has been reached, the juices are pressed and filtered out to remove all seeds and pulp for a more clear product. Juice is cooled to -10C/14F to preserve its integrity. They are packaged and shipped to their North American destination.

Frozen Grapes

blue grape with green leaf isolated on whiteGrapes are selected at their optimum levels during the Chilean harvest each year. The grapes are hand picked and then crushed and de-stemmed onsite. The grape skins and juices are then transferred into 25kg containers which are lined with a food grade bag to prevent any damage to the grape during freezing and transportation. Grapes are then sent to a cooling facility that brings the temperature down to -10C/14F where they are shipped to our holding location in North America and ready to be converted into wine by you.

Advantages to Frozen Grapes vs. Fresh Grapes

  • Longer shelf life;
  • Availability of product year long;
  • Cold Soak allows for an extraction of colour and flavour without the bitterness and astringency of the tannins which brings a more flavourful wine to the palate.
