Cousins Diego Rivera and Matias Nahrwold started Quebrada del Chucao in 2010. Diego is a winemaker in Leyda Valley who wrote his thesis in cider fermentation. They work with multiple small heirloom apple orchards in a small town called Huiscapi, just east of Villarica, in Chile’s Lake Region. The orchards are approximately sixty years old, and the apples are harvested, hand pressed, and fermented via Methode Traditional. The Sidras are dry, micro-production, and often compared to Farmhouse English or traditional Basque Ciders.
