Andes Plateau: The special conjunction of a warm Mediterranean climate with the geographic characteristics of the country, makes Chile an ideal and special place to develop a environmentally friendly viticulture and get a wide variety of wine styles.
Andes Plateu is inspired by the Andes Mountains. This magnificent mountain range, combines perfectly the altitude, colors, sky and terroir, delivering special and unknown characteristics.
In one of his many trips, motivated to produce a exotic, elegant, unique wine, the enologist Felipe Uribe, began this project based at 700 meters above sea level.
This is the origin of our first wine called 700, a bright, low alcohol and high acidity wine that is fermented with native yeast.
After studying Agriculture and working for two years in San Pedro Vineyards (Chile) he studied at Polytechnic University in Madrid (Spain) where he got his Masters degree in Viticulture and Enology. He came back to Chile and worked as wine maker assistant at Santa Helena Vineyard.
Looking for new challenges he went to USA and worked for La Crema Winey at Sonoma Valley.
He came back to Chile as wine maker assistant for De Martino Vineyard and then he worked as chief winemaker for Miravalle Vineyard, which is located on the upper part of the Cachapoal Valley.
Nowadays he is a wine making consultant for several projects in that same Valley.
He also worked as head Enologist at William Fevre Vineyard (Maipo Valley) where he got the prize “award for the Chilean most innovative wine of 2012” granted by “El Mercurio”, the most important newspaper in Chile and “Award Revelation Wine of 2012” granted for the famous wine guide en Chile, “Descorchados”.
Enologist/Andes Plateau Founder
The altitude, colors, sky and special terroirs are the characteristics delivered by our magnificent mountain known as The Andes Mountains
One of the main characteristics that makes our wines unique is the location of our vineyards, over 700 meter above sea level, in privilege places like Alcohuaz (Valle Elqui) y Cajón del Maipo (Valle de Maipo).
Being able to have this cool climate, sunny terroirs, that allows a slow maturation of the grapes, in conjunction with granitic, colluvial, alluvial mountain soils and the precise election and management of the vines, enables the delivery of unique quality fruit that can transmit it’s t high Andes Mountain origin with lower alcohol wines, vibrant acidity and a unknown elegance.
The Andes Mountains is an uncharted territory when it comes to winemaking, here is where Andes Plateau is born, with his 700 wine, as a constant search of the many benefits that high mountain terroir can give, fresh lively wines, with low alcohols and high acidity.
This wines is made only with natural yeast and no corrections are made through the process, allowing it to express the true terroir identity.
