Wine Makers

K42 Merlot by Irene Paiva

In the male dominated wine world of South America, Irene Paiva proudly paves the way for other women to break from traditional mores and work the vines if they so choose. She readily admits, “When I started making wine, there were very few women working in the business.” Today she is often listed as one of the most influential business leaders in Chile.

 

Winemaking was a natural choice for Irene having spent her childhood in the Andean vineyards. “As the gypsy of our family, I started out thinking about working with animals; cows, horses, etc. I grew up near Talca and I spent a lot of time in the country with my cousins mostly on my grandfather’s farm in Maule. He made wine and maybe that came back to me.” 

 

Being blessed with ideal climatic conditions of the Maule valley helps her produce consistently charismatic wines. The grapes are hand harvested, and unripe or damaged bunches are removed before they reach the winery. Irene has also ensured Korta is signed up to the ISO standard for protection of the environment .
