Boya was created by the Garcés Silva family, pioneers of the coastal Leyda Valley in Chile. Boya in Spanish means “buoy” – an appropriate name for a wine coming from vineyard blocks that overlook the Pacific Ocean. The winery’s architecture is inspired by its environment, and the surrounding rolling hills determine the different levels of the winery. Boya is made in a 100% gravity fed winery, a winemaking practice that preserves its aromatic potential and natural structure. Wild yeast fermentation, low-sulphur dosing, and little to no fining is also practiced.
All Boya wines are certified sustainable through Wines of Chile Sustainability Code. This code certiﬁes wineries working sustainably in four different areas including vineyards, winemaking, employees and tourism. The winery is on-track to becoming Certiﬁed Organic by 2023 through its various efforts of composting and working with sheep, cows and horses to adopt as many regenerative agriculture practices as possible.
Boya’s Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect balance of lime-tinged fruit and natural acidity with a clean, refined finish. An attractive nose of fresh white flowers and pineapple with hints of mango and passion fruit. The palate is well-balanced with beautiful acidity, lively lime-tinged fruit and a refined, crisp finish.
A coastal, approachable Pinot Noir that melds lively acidity with bright red fruits in a well-balanced, harmonious style. Intense nose of fresh fruits like strawberry, red cherries and plenty of floral aroma. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, good natural acidity and fresh berry fruits towards the finish. It is well balanced, clean and expressive.
