Cenizas wines are born from the exploration of nature. On the slopes of the Andes, these wines come from soils formed by volcanic ash over thousands of years. Planted on curves and slopes, they create a circular and rhythmic layout of the vineyards that is expressed in the wine. They produce wines of great minerality, vibrant acidity, freshness, elegance and length on the palate.

Oriented to produce high quality wines. Located in the beginning of the Andes mountains. The vineyard is planted at 600m (1900 ft) of altitude. Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun, by a lake, in an eastern mountainous region of the Maule Valley. He began to plant vines in 1993 and now cultivates 5 separate sections totalling 18ha of vineyards within their 80ha property. The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually planting a section as a labyrinth (Laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels. The winery produces stunning expressions.
