Viña Botalcura is the result of the passion of two men—one Chilean, one French, and both passionate about the small town of Botalcura and the wines they can make there. Chilean businessman Juan Fernando Waidele met French winemaker Philippe Debrus in 2000, and their fate was sealed. Waidele was seduced by the enchanting Maule Valley countryside and Debrus longed to return to the hands-on style of winemaking he learned as a young winemaker in France. They began their project in 2000 and vinified their first wine in 2002. – Description from iskicm

  • Botalcura Malbec la Porfia Grand Reserve 2007


    Full bodied and on the richer side of the Malbec spectrum. Lots of dark fruit with mellow tannins. Good finish. Pairs great with grilled meats. Would say Chile has a winner here! Read More

  • Botalcura Malbec la Porfia Grand Reserve 2007


    Dusty, oily bramblefruit. textbook chilean red. I don't believe I have ever had a chilean malbec, but they really should make more because it's just as good as argentina. We decided to pair this with spicy merguez sausage and potato pancakes. Fit like a glove. Any grilled lamb dish like middle eastern shwarma would be great with this. Read More

  • Botalcura Syrah Malbec Reserve El Delirio 2004


    The very best of the French savoir-faire and the Chilean terroir in a single bottle!!! This is the wine you must have for any great reception!Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violets, black pepper, and nutmeg. The Syrah lends grip and structure, while the Malbec provides color, aromatic complexity, and voluptuous body. Read More
