Our main producers vineyard is in the Lontue River watershed, part of the Curicó Valley, which has burgeoned since the 1970s into a prestigious producer of internationally recognized wines. The vineyard is 80 kilometers (50 miles) from the Pacific and 60 kilometers (37 miles) from the Andes. The influence of the ocean and the mountains results in the markedly lower night temperatures that high-quality grapes require. This day-night temperature fluctuation has a positive effect on the development and maturation of aromas and polyphenols in our grapes. Although the summer sunshine is intense, cool afternoon breezes from the ocean contribute to the gradual maturing process that gives grapes the best color and fragrance. >More that 300 hectares of vineyards spreading out below a high, steep hillside. (1 hectare = 2.2 acres.) The vineyard is irrigated with waters brought from the high Andes by canal. Rainfall, almost all in the chilly winter, averages 600 milliliters (23.6 inches) a year. In addition to ideal climate conditions that enable optimal ripening of the fruit, our grapes are cultivated in various types of soils, which help define the specific characteristics of each of our wines.
