OUR VINEYARDS

Curicó Valley


Located 200 km south from Santiago, Curicó valley is one of the most remarkable wine producing regions in Chile. Its first vines were brought at the middle of 1800s from Europeans who established the first wineries.

 

Sagrada Familia is the western side of the valley and the warmest, it features high temperatures in summer suitable for red grapes as Carménére and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Lontué and Molina represent the eastern side of the valley. Having moderated temperatures and fluvial-origin soils, Lontue is the most important area for reds as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Further east and closer to Andes Mountain range, is Lontue, a widely recognize wine area, famous for white grapes as Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay.
