The vineyards are situated in Curicó, Chile’s largest and most famous wine valley. With privileged climate, alluvial soil, a long dry season and a daytime/nighttime temperature differential of some 20ºC, this region offers the ideal conditions for the production of superior wines.
Bellavista: Its slightly deep soil with little rock content provides excellent conditions for varieties like Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer.
Micaela: Deep clay-loam soil with a rocky profile below one meter of depth, ideal for red varieties.
Peñaflor: Deep clay-loam, slightly acidic soil with gentle slopes mostly used to grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenère, and Pinot Noir and Merlot to a lesser extent.
La Reserva: Variable soil (from clay-loam to sandy), with medium-low fertility, rolling hills and different sun exposure, perfect for the production of a wide range of grape varieties.
Grapes of the highest quality are essential for the production of superior wines. To attain the level of quality we seek, we have focused our processes on:
Sectorization of the vineyards using precision viticulture.
Intensive canopy management to enhance bunch microclimate.
Lower yields to boost fruit intensity.
FDR technology to monitor soil moisture and determine irrigation strategies.
