A winery born from the study of music. Juan José Ledesma worked for years in the vineyards, researching grapevine genetics for the Chilean government. Whilst on his travels he discovered a Malbec vineyard that was over 100 years old. His request for backing to restore this vineyard was declined, so he tried a different angle, the research of the effect of music on wine. Each barrel is plugged with a different tune, playing inside, turning the lees, shaping the wine.Following his discovery of the ancient Malbec vines, Juan José expanded the business to work with other dry grown, ancient ancestral vines grown in Itata and Biobio. As their name suggests, Terroir Sonoro is all about ‘terroir and songs’.
