Pinot Noir
A wine brand associated with a bicycle, used by the workers in the vineyards
Chile, Cono Sur, Bicicleta, Pinot Noir, 2012

The Viña Cono Sur workers get around the vineyards on a bicycle, doing their work. Produced in the Valle Central, near the town of Chimbarongo, Santa Elisa Estate, 160 km south from Santiago. The Bicicleta range holds 13 different single variety wines, all under the name of wine maker Matias Rios, whites and reds.

Cono Sur is well presented right across Chile’s wine growing regions, with various estates and is one of main wine producers in the country. Chimbarongo is in the Colchagua valley, an agricultural area with a modern and well established wine industry, in an ideal climate for growing wine. In the Bío Bío valley, one of the world’s southernmost winemaking regions, Cono Sur grows grapes for their sparkling wine.
