Felipe started with G&S in 2006. After working for larger wineries, he made his first independent wine as a declaration of what he considers true “Chilean” wine. Inspired at first by old-vine Carignan from Maule, he since have started two of Chile’s most influential small producer movements today: MOVI (Movement of Independent Vintners) and VIGNO (Vignadores de Carignan).

Facundo is the wine that started Felipe’s independent winemaking career. It blends old-vine Carignan with Bordeaux varieties from the heart of Chile (the Carignan and Cabernet Franc are from old vines in Maule Valley, the Cabernet Sauvignon is from Itata, and Petit Verdot is from Colchagua). The vineyards are naturally low yielding from granitic soils. The components are vinified, separated, aged for 28 months in third and fourth use French neutral oak, then filtered lightly before bottling.
