After winemaking travels across the world, Fred Skwara returned to his home country of Chile to showcase the most of exciting face of Chilean wine. His goal was to move the conversation away from the typical commercial, industrialized and monotonous Chilean wine that dominates the market. Working with only organic sites and predominantly old vine fruit Skwara has done just that, while still providing some of the most exciting value driven wines coming out of Chile. Minimal intervention in the cellar, a broad selection of grape varietals, and alternative fermentation vessels and techniques allow Casalibre to craft a more pure interpretation of what Chile has to offer to the international wine community.
