Tayu 1865 is brought to us from the southern Chilean region of Malleco, elaborated by indigenous families in the community of Buchahueico. The Mapuches, which means “people of the land”, have a connection to the earth that goes beyond what can be understood enologically. Tayu, which means “ours” in Mapundungun, is the proud result of this special winemaking endeavor, presenting a new understanding of the variety, based on an approach to nature, which values family and respect above all.
