We are very pleased to offer our wine direct from the winery to you!
The Hurtado family planted vineyards at the Viña Maquis Estate in the Colchagua Valley of Chile during the early 20th century. With rivers running on both sides of the estate, the Hurtado family knew this property was special: the vineyards were blessed with a temperate climate and rich soils. For nearly 60 years, Viña Maquis has cultivated grapes that were sold to renowned neighboring wineries. In 2002, the family decided to make their own wine out of the terrific grapes in their own backyard. They built a gorgeous, state-of-the-art gravity flow winery and set out to make Maquis Lien, a "Super Chilean" blend using the vineyard’s best red grapes that express the story of that vintage. In Chile's native Mapuche language, lien means "silver metal"—a reference to colonial Spanish coins that were once melted to make fine jewelry like the silver lizard depicted on the Maquis Lien label.
