Gillmore Estate

Family winery located in the dry farming area of Maule

About the winery
The dry-farmed vineyards are planted on the gently rolling hills of the Loncomilla Valley in the Coastal Mountain Range, 60 km (37 mi) from the Pacific, where they receive very good ventilation. The original País vines were planted more than 80 years ago, and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Carignan were grafted onto the ancient roots in the late 1980s. The combination of the area’s poor granitic soils and winter only rainfall result in naturally low yields and an organic expression of the vine. These restrictive conditions are expressed wisely in the fruit, which ripens slowly with good concentration, acidity, and balance.

History & Geography
Viña Gillmore began with a dream. In the late 1980s, Chilean visionary Francisco Gillmore took over operation of the century old Tabontinaja winery and its ancient dry-farmed vineyards planted to the rustic País variety. He took advantage of their healthy, hearty roots and grafted them with fine French varieties. From the beginning his wines were imbued with the spirit of this unique dry-farmed condition of restriction and resistance in which their rustic personality was expressed with vibrant acidity and tremendous character. The project also includes his daughter, Daniella Gillmore, whose love of the country life guides her in overseeing the vineyards and the collection of native fauna on the farm. The winemaker Andrés Sánchez, is the talented artisan behind their wines Hacedor de Mundos and Cobre, wines crafted to interpret the soul of the sector and its people. Their two children, Martín and Dominga now represent the third generation of the family to stretch their roots
