Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun. Colbun is an eastern mountainous region located within the Maule Valley. It is inserted in the foothills of the Andes, about three hours south of Santiago. The property was a summer resort for the family even before the waters of the Maule River were retained in 1985, which formed the largest lake in the central part of the country.

Rafael Tirado planted the first vines in 1993: half a hectare of Cabernet Sauvignon. Now the winery cultivates five separate sections totaling 18 hectares of vineyards within their 80-hectare property. The soils are composed of granite and volcanic ash, and his vineyards are located at approximately 1,800 feet altitude. He planted on the slopes in multiple row orientations, eventually planting a section as a labyrinth (laberinto), hence the name of the wines and the drawings on the labels. The winery produces stunning expressions of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and a Bordeaux blend.
