Over 80 millions years ago, a huge volcanic eruption
gave origin to the combarbalita, emblem stone of
Limarí’s Valley, place where the vineyards and
wineries of Gemma are found. Used since pre-columbian
times with ornamental and utilitarian aims, the
combarbalita is one of Chile’s more
emblematic semi precious stones.
Of marbled aspect and various colours, turquoise green,
red, white and pink-brown. After centuries of efforts, the work of
the carvers has made the handicrafts with combarbalita to join
Chile’s culture, history and traditions.
For this reason, is why the combarbalita is the iconic stone of this
sparkling wine. This geological event not only contributed to
the unique minerality of our soils, but it’s also
the inspiration of its label.
