Guy Anderson Wines launches Mayu

Published:  18 January, 2007

Guy Anderson Wines has expanded its portfolio to include Chile with the launch of an award-winning range from the Elqui Valley.

Mayu' is a new venture by the Olivier family that owns the highly-respected Via Falernia and the new wines are proving true to form for this family with Mayu Syrah Reserva 2006 taking the Trophy for Best Syrah at the 5th Annual Wines of Chile Awards.


Mauro Olivier oversees the Mayu business and vineyards which are located in Chile's most northerly wine region where a tract of desert has been transformed into lush, high altitude vineyards. Talented Italian winemaker Giorgio Flessati is responsible for both Mayu and Falernia and exactly the same care and dedication goes into both sets of wines.

"Mayu" is the Inca name for the Milky Way. The crystal clear skies over the Elqui Valley mean that it is as perfect a place for stargazing as it is for making exceptional wines. There are many observatories located in the area, including a spectacular one above the vineyards on the Mayu mountain.

The Mayu labels were created by Guy Anderson Wines, with the UK market in mind.

The Wines

White varietals include Sauvignon Blanc and Pedro Jiminez which both won medals at the 5th Wines of Chile Awards. There are Syrah and Carmenre Syrah reds and ross and, of course, the exceptional Carmenre Reserva and Syrah Reserva that the panel of judges admired so much.

"We are excited to be working with our friend Giorgio Flessati in Chile as well as Italy now", says Simon Bradbury, Sales Director, Guy Anderson Wines. "Mayu offers an outstanding range of wines that have already been recognised for their distinctive quality up against the very best of Chile."
