Longavi Wines – A continental wine collaboration

The Longavi wines are the result of a collaboration between two friends from different continents – Chilean producer Julio Bouchon and South African winemaker David Nieuwoudt, who teamed up to produce wine in the Leyda Valley in Chile.

Longaví means ‘snake’s head’ which was derived from Nevado de Longaví, a volcanic mountain at the foot of the Andes that Julio draws inspiration from. The vine wreath on the label denotes the Ourobos, an ancient African symbol that represents nature’s eternal cycle of renewal. The condor soaring high above the Andes represents freedom and the search for perfection. This sacred bird is believed to be man’s messenger to the gods. Longaví wines will certainly please both man and the gods!
