For years the Chileans have propagated the myth that they alone are capable of producing quality, modern single vineyard wines at very affordable prices but the wines from Umbrele, hailing from the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, demonstrate how wrong they were. Massive investment in new vineyards and in the winery has resulted in beautifully fresh and fruity wines that would be enough to convince even Dracula of the error of his ways
