The Garage Wine Co. began spiritually and physically in the Mossman-Miranda garage in 2001. It was personal caprice for a few years until the  the wines became an urban legend and there was no turning back nor changing the name.  Today GWCo. has three partners: winemakers Pilar Miranda & Alvaro Peña PhD, and Derek Mossman the hands-on DIY manager. The firm makes few and focused wines that include: Carignan blends from Sauzal and Caliboro. Each “Lot” is a single vineyard field-blend from different small ploughman farmer in the Maule. What began as a boot strapping project after the earthquake of 2010 evolved into a social entrepreneurship programme called Ploughman Farmers.  GWCo invests in the farms grafting Grenache Mourvedre & Cinsault onto ancient roots of Pais to complement existing plots of old vine Carignan. From its inception GWCo has also made a Lot of pure Cab Franc and a Cab Sauv. based blend both grown high in the Maipo. The wines are fermented with native yeasts in open-top fermenters. Caps are punched down by hand and pressing is strictly manual. All wines are barrelled in neutral oak (of 3 or more uses) over two winters and then aged in bottle. The firm also makes a solera red blend from gnarly old Maule vines without irrigation under the label: Perverso, and each year a small bottling of a young fresh light red wine called Old Vine Pale. GWCo. is a proud co-founder of MOVI and VIGNO. Read less
