Frenchman David Marcel is the producer and winemaker of Viña Maitia with his Chilean wife Loreto in the Maule Valley of Chile. Marcel comes from the French Basque Country and has been involved with wine in Chile for a long time. He was one of the first winemakers in Chile to succeed in the production of quality, craft Pipeño starting with the 2013 vintage, and a Carignan called Weon starting in 2016. The combination of the traditional production method and the traditional grape varieties lead to a very unique, herbal, and quaffable wines that are incredible values.
