A Los Vinateros Bravos is located in the Old Itata Hills which is a place where terroir allows for incredibly unique wines. The vineyards are on volcanic or granitic soils with large quartz deposits. They have mild summers with a lot of influence from the Pacific Ocean on the Itata River. Fresh sea breeze slows the ripening of the grapes.
