Viña Echeverría is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the

Echeverría family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back

to the 1700s, Viña Echeverría is as much today, as always, driven by a shared

passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña

Echeverría combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with

a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce an extensive collection of quality wines.

Viña Echeverría has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.


The vineyard is located in Maipo Alto in the Central Valley. Alto Maipo reaches into

the foothills of the Andean Mountains; the vineyard is situated at elevations of

between 400 to 800 metres above sea level. The afternoon sun warms the vineyard

and the cool mountain breezes that slide down the hillside at night create a broad

oscillation between day and night temperatures. This diurnal temperature difference

creates perfect conditions for bold yet elegant red wines. Careful pruning is carried

out to allow the correct balance between the canopy and the fruit, while irrigation is

carefully managed to avoid dehydration. The vines are grown in medium fertility soils

of mostly red and black clay.


The hand-harvested grapes were fermented in 25,000 litre open stainless steel tanks

for seven days with selected yeasts, at controlled temperatures of 25 to 28°C.

Extended skin maceration followed, for an additional six to eight days. The wine then

went through 100% malolactic fermentation, before being aged in 225 litre French

oak barrels, of second and third use for 10 to 12 months.
