Dos Almas Pinot Noir Gran Reserva 2015
THERE IS A PASSION THAT KNOWS NO BORDERS… … that crosses oceans and continents and unites hemispheres. This dedication to excellence, rooted in seven generations of winemaking tradition, is what led the Zonin family from the vineyards of Italy to search for the perfect terroir in which to further develop their dream. They began their journey, faithful to their vision of creating connections between people and places through wine. Their voyage was driven by a desire to promote the biodiversity and cultural riches of outstanding world wine regions, and they found the ideal place to fulfil this commitment in Chile, complementing two hundred years of Italian craftsmanship with the kaleidoscope of terroirs and microclimates that make up this wonderful country. Here, the Zonin family could create wines capable of merging two identities: Italian winemaking tradition and Chilean terroir, like two souls connected by a single purpose - creating perfect harmony. The quest for perfection can connect polar opposites, inspire adventurers, create visionaries and intertwine two worlds in perfect harmony. Under the watchful gaze of the North Star, the Zonin family has spent generations perfecting their wines, cultivated in vineyards in Italy’s seven finest Regions for producing wine. But this desire for perfection, for sharing the best of their winemaking heritage, could never be confined to one country. They were drawn to another terroir: equally characterful, complementary, but a polar opposite. The Zonin family discovered the ideal conditions to start making wines on the other side of the world, combining the best of Italy and Chile. Like explorers, guided by the light of the stars in circumnavigating the globe, the Zonin family found their perfect soul mate. Beginning their journey under the glimmer of the North Star, they set their course towards the beckoning Southern Cross, where Chile, the second soul of their story, lay in patient wait. They arrived to discover a land of mountains, coasts and sun-drenched valleys, infused with an essence of promise. It was a country that reflected their style, a place where they could channel the family’s experience, developed whilst making wines for almost 200 years in Italy, and combine it with a wide diversity of terroirs, microclimates and local expertise in creating fine Chilean wines with a distinctive Italian character: a blend of passion and terroir, rooted in Italian history and nurtured in the ungrafted vineyards of Chile.

THE NEW GENERATION With its close ties to the land for the past seven generations, the Zonin family heads the largest private vine growing and winemaking company in Italy (and one of the most important in Europe as well). Domenico Zonin, President of ZONIN1821, since 2014, took over from his father Gianni Zonin, who has run the company since 1967 for forty years, transforming it from a local dimension to being one of Italy’s most important wine producers and an established, well- known brand all over the world. VINTNERS SINCE 1821 The heart of the company is located in Gambellara, in the province of Vicenza, an oasis of lush green hills, meticulously arranged vineyards, and also the ancestral home of the Zonin family. This history has manifested itself in the vicissitudes, the hard work and the inspired decisions of a family whose name is inextricably linked to passion for the land, its vines and wine. In the historic headquarters of the Company, the Zonin family began to produce wines on a small scale in the early 1800s. In the next century, ”Commendatore” Domenico Zonin would initiate an aggressive marketing strategy. This dynamic man, born in 1899, lived to the venerable age of 101, technically spanning three centuries. His youthful spirit bore witness to dramatic transformations of a way of life that evolved into modern present day in which a seventh generation of the family runs the firm. Today the Zonin family honor their family’s historical passion for the vineyard, the sine qua non for producing high-quality wines, by including ”Vintners since 1821” on their logo. The wooden wine press, located at the entrance hall of the Zonin’s headquarters in Gambellara, dates back to the beginning of the 19th century.
