Pais Viejo (‘Old Pais’) is a wine with history. Made with Pais grapes from over 100-year-old Gobelet vines planted in the dry-farmed, coastal region of Maule.


Bright cherry color. A very juicy, fresh, light and honest wine with aromas of strawberry, wildflowers and sour cherry.


Fish, pasta, or on its own & slightly chilled


These head-trained Pais vines are planted on very old soil of granitic, sandy loam formed by Chile’s coastal mountains. Pais Viejo is 100% naturally-vinified using century-old winemaking techniques, including the use of the zaranda (a structure made of sticks to destem the grape clusters). The grapes are hand harvested and fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks to preserve the wine’s authentic expression of terroir.

More about J. Bouchon

J. Bouchon is a family owned winery, with Julio Sr. and his two sons handling most day to day affairs. The are giving Pais a chance by creating blends and leaving it to shine on its own. Pais is originally from Spain, but made its way to Chile by way of Missionaries, so it is often referred to as the ‘.mission grape’. Bouchon’s over 100 year old Pais vines are grown more like a bush than the structured vines we typically see.
