In 1993 founders Francisco Achurra and Patricio Larrain began searching for new terroirs in which they could produce a wider range of varieties and styles. ‘Alto Roble’ means ‘tall oak tree’, representing strength, stability and nobility, something they aim to reflect in their wines.
Winemaking is led by Eloísa Uribe, she has vast experience including several years in Sonoma Valley and has been working at Alto Roble exclusively since 2002
Tasting Note: A lifted nose of citrus fruits, acacia and green apple moves to a light and refreshing palate. Apples, pears and some freshly cut grass sit alongside a clean, linear acidity.
Producer: Santiago Achurra Larraín founded the Viña Requingua in 1961 and, alongside new generations of the Achurra family, he has grown the winery to be amongst Chile’s top 20 producers
