Market Price
To show you the value you're getting as an Angel...

Every month, we benchmark a selection of our wines against up to three comparable wines on the market. The Market Price is based on the price of those wines.

What do we mean by benchmark? We order the wines in and taste them blind against our own, or we use our market knowledge (over 30 years between us) to set an industry standard Market Price.

If you buy one of our wines and disagree with the Market Price, or it's not your cup of tea, we'll give you your money back.

About the wine

Easy-drinking Merlot from a true artisan, small-scale Chilean winemaker
  • Chile was made to grow Merlot - 300 days of sunshine a year, high altitude, and just the right amount of water all help to ripen the grapes to fat, juicy perfection.
  • Juan is a one-man dynamo. With the help of his family and the local village he gets the job done. No consultants, no sales managers, no agents, which is why the price is so damn low.
  • Generous and fruity, Juan's Merlot glows ruby red. Think blackberry compote with hints of soft pepper and coffee.

Best before
You can keep it, ageing for, at least 3 years more without any problem, but wine is ready to try it right away

Serving advice
no, just try it

Food match
it pairs very well with pizza, chicken dishes, sushi....

Meet the winemaker - Juan Ignacio Mena

  • Juan is our favourite kind of winemaker. Big on grapes. Small on international wine marketing. A genuine artisan, one-man band, small-scale winemaker.
  • Juan doesn't own a suit. Probably. He certainly doesn't have a sales manager. So when Juan's principal client went bust we stepped in and helped out. In exchange for preferential prices.
  • Fresh, pure and delicious. Being a small producer, we don't have an endless supply of Juan's wine. So best get in while you can.
