More about Aquitania

In the early 1990’s, two Bordeaux luminaries discoveredthe high caliber of Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile’s Alto Maipo region.They partnered with a native Chilean winemaker to make their dream a reality and set to work making one of the first small-production wineries in the region. Their cabs will be sure to remind you of Bordeaux, with Lazuli only being made during the best of vintages with the very best fruit.
