Laberinto is a small gravity fed winery owned by Rafael Tirado and his family in Colbun in an eastern mountainous region of the Maule Valley. Colbun is inserted in the foothills of the Andes, about three hours south of Santiago. It was a summer resort for the family from 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 5 separate sections totaling 18ha of vineyards within their 80ha 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.
