This wine is a collaboration between Chilean producer Julio Bouchon and South African winemaker David Nieuwoudt. Longaví, meaning ‘snake’s head’, draws on the spirit and legends of two continents. The vine wreath denoting the ouroboros, an ancient African symbol, represents nature’s eternal cycle of renewal. The sacred condor soaring high above the Andes - man’s messenger to the gods - represents the winemaker's freedom and search for perfection. Longaví wines will certainly please both man and the gods!
