Longavi wine range is a collaboration between two friends from different continents who teamed up during 2012 - Chilean producer Julio Bouchon and South African winemaker David Nieuwoudt. Julio, a descendent of a French wine pioneer who settled in Chile in 1892 is the producer and David the winemaker and owner of Cederberg, one of  South Africa’s most prestigious wineries.

Longaví, meaning ‘snake’s head’, draws on the spirit and legends of two continents. The name derives from a stratovolcano called Nevado de Longaví – a perennially snowcapped peak of 3242m, situated in the Maule region in Chile. This is a large, lone-standing crater, showing immense stature, set majestically at the foot of the Andes. A small town, named after the volcano was established here long after this crater was formed.

The vine wreath depicted on the label denotes the Ourobos, an ancient African symbol that represents nature’s eternal cycle of renewal. The sacred condor - man’s messenger to the gods - soaring high above the Andes represents the freedom of the two men and their search for perfection. Longaví wines will certainly please both man and the gods!
