Julio Basillas from Matetic Vineyards

As much as I find the history of a winery interesting, to me the winemakers background and experience is what drives the wineries brand a flavor profile. And as I interview winemakers from all over the world, I find such a great diversity in education, experience, pedigree and winemaking philosophy. A few weeks ago I interviewed the descendant of one the great 2nd growth Bordeaux; clearly pedigreed and born with a silver tastevin (as it were). Today I speak with Julio Basillas of Matetic winery in Chile. A stark contrast to my Bordeaux interview, the passion is the same. Grow the best grapes you can to make the best expression of those grapes in wine. Have a listen and feel his commitment.
