Montsecano


Montsecano is a collaboration of Julio Donoso and André Ostertag of Alsace. This Biodynamic Winery consists of two hillside, granitic, small vineyards in the Casablanca Valley. A minimal approach is used in the horse-plowed vineyard and winery. The wines are made exclusively in stainless steel micro tanks or concrete egg fermenters. No oak is used. The small production consists of two Pinot Noirs which are quickly being recognized as some of the best of South America.
