Wherever you look on the Cono Sur estate, you'll find bicycles propped up against the walls and at the end of rows of vines - it's the "green" way Cono Sur workers get to work and around the estate. In fact, we're so keen on them we've named one of our wine ranges "Bicicleta", in honour of our employees and to represent our commitment to the environment.

Cono Sur's sparkling wine comes from one of the southernmost wine growing regions in the world, the Bio-Bio valley. Known for its sunny yet cold weather conditions, along with rich red soils, it is the perfect location for well-balanced, concentrated wines, with excellent acidity and splendid minerality.

These premium wines have great elegance and each variety in this range has its own personality and unique character.

In 1996 Cono Sur decided to tackle the challenge of making their first ultra premium wine. The chosen variety was Pinot Noir and 20 barrels of the best fruit that year were set aside. Thus the name was coined and a Sauvignon Blanc followed.

Cono Sur's Chief Winemaker Adolfo Hurtado grew up expecting he would work in agriculture like his family before him, and then at university turned his hand to wine. His favourite things about the job are 'the passion of the team' as well as the innovative approach in developing more unusual grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Riesling and Viognier. Adolfo has also experimented with growing vineyards in cool climate areas of Chile like Bio Bio and Casablanca, which he credits with bringing Cono Sur's signature fresh and elegant style.

Adolfo's favourite part of the job is that no day is normal! As chief winemaker he splits his time between the vineyards, the winery office and overseas trips to see export markets. And his favourite grape? That's Pinot Noir, which he says 'is also the hardest to grow and make wine from, so when you get a good Pinot Noir that is something to be really proud of'.
