Viña Echeverria is a family-owned estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverria family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverria is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña Echeverria combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with a modern state of the art winery, to produce a range of over 20 quality wines from 9 different grape varieties. It has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.
Using a model of Microviticulture, the vineyard is separated into 200 small areas. Each of these areas is managed like an individual vineyard, obtaining the best quality from each grape and each vine.
