Garage Wine Co was literally started in a garage in 2001, by Etobicoke expat Derek Mossman and his wife Pilar Miranda. Since then, the dynamic duo have chosen to revive old vineyards in marginalized Chilean communities. They work mostly in the regions of Maule and Itata where they make highly coveted wines.

This mixed case includes six bottles for the frugal hedonist to get their tongue wet:

Garage Wine Co Cabernet Franc San Juan Pirque Vineyard Lot #90 2019. This single vineyard wine is part of Garage's Mountain Grown series. An ancient riverbed flows beneath this vineyard planted with Cabernet Franc. Nose of crushed raspberries and flowers. There is notable freshness with blue fruit aromas, mint, fresh leaves and a touch of balsamic– it's a little wild, medium-bodied with very fine tannins and has a fine elegant texture. 94 points James Suckling.

Garage Wine Co Cariñena/Garnacha/Mataró Field-Blend Sauzal Vineyard Lot #75 2016. This wine is a single parcel field blend made from Carignan, Garnacha and Mataro, belonging to Don Nivaldo Morales and his wife Otelia and located in Sauzal, on the Coastal Range, where the soils are way older and more complex than the Andes. The nose is fresh and has tantalizing aromas of blueberries, violets, orange peel, raspberry leaf and aniseed with a touch of aromatic herbs that provide freshness. 95 points Robert Parker.

Garage Wine Co Garnacha Field-Blend Bagual Vineyard Lot #79 2016. This is a single-plot Garnacha from a small parcel on a historic Caliboro farm. On the nose it's potent, mineral-accented raspberry, cherry liqueur and potpourri aromas are complemented by a suave Asian spice note that builds in the glass. 94 points Robert Parker.

Garage Wine Co País 215BC - Single Ferments Series 2019. This wine is made with Pais from Portezuelo, and it's called '215 BC Ferment', because Pais was being cultivated in the region 215 years before Cabernet Sauvignon was documented for the first time. The wine is super fresh and clean. It is also soft, floral, slightly rustic and with a special finesse. 93 points Robert Parker.

Garage Wine Co Phoenix Ferment País/Cariñena - Single Ferments Series 2019. he Phoenix Ferments is a white wine made from 150+ years old bush-head vines of Pais and Cariñena. It’s surprisingly floral and aromatic, fresh and clean, with a vibrant palate, focused and delicious.

Garage Wine Co The Soothsayer Cinsault - Single Ferments Series 2019. The Soothsayer Ferment 2019 is made from 60+ years old vines of Cinsault located in Portezuelo and Guarilihue. On the nose, it has dark plums, wet earth, cedar and baking spices aromas. This is a full-bodied cinsault that draws out a round and generous palate, through dark cherries and juicy tannins. 93 points Patricio Tapia.

About the Winery

Garage Wine Co.

Garage Wine was literally started in a garage in 2001, by Etobicoke expat Derek Mossman and his wife Pilar Miranda. Since then, the dynamic duo handcraft wines from a series of individual vineyards located in the Maule and Itata Valleys, in the south of Santiago, Chile.

Garage Wine Co makes wines from a series of individual parcels, small lots / bottlings of 8-22 barrels that include a series of dry-farmed field-blends of Carignan, Garnacha, Monastrell, País, Cinsault and Cab Franc grown on pre-phylloxera rootstock with small farmers in the Maule and Itata. Each wine is from a 1-2 hectare parcel in a different place.

Over the years working in the community they have raised a veritable posse of vineyard hands whose skills are working the vineyards the old way / the traditional way– originario. The vineyards are on the old coastal range of mountains closer to the Pacific and have granitic soils with cracks for roots to get deep down into.

When GWCo. speaks of the provenance of these wines they mean more than just the geological terroir. Derek and Pilar think the farming practices that have evolved over generations have as much to do with the wines’ personalities as the soils. All the wines are made by hand with native yeasts in small tanks, punched down manually and pressed out in a small basket press. GWCo is still very much a DIY operation and we still tow much of the crop back to the winery in trailers behind trusty pickup trucks 2,000 kilos at a time.
