NEW ARRIVALS & CLASS: Wines of Bolivia
NEW ARRIVALS: Bolivia
Bolivia's unique high elevation terroir and historic vineyards produce intriguing grape varietals used in wines as well as a local spirit called singani. This little-known tradition has remained hidden from most of the world...
Our friends at Chufly Imports have made it their mission to bring these exceptional bottles to wine and spirits lovers in the United States, and Dreadnought Wines has now added several of these bottles to our portfolio. See full selection below.
Why Bolivian Wine?
Among the oldest new world wine-growing regions, Bolivia's cool-climate valleys are also the highest in the world. Perched at well over a mile above sea level, the equatorial sun's intensity creates nose-tickling aromatics, tongue-twisting flavors, and reason-defying balance.

How Buying Bolivian Makes a Difference
As the poorest country in South America, Bolivia is overly dependent on commodities -- mining, oil & gas, grains. Wine and singani are among the few value-added goods Bolivia produces, so the socioeconomic impact is BIG.
Well, just apply the 25 acres | 10 families rule: for every 25 acres of grape vines planted, 10 families are lifted out of extreme poverty. So, if Chufly achieves their mission of making Bolivian wine and singani a staple of every wine and cocktail menu, then they will have helped lift thousands of families out of extreme poverty.*
