VINA REQUINGUA: Santiago Achurra Larrain founded the winery in 1961 and alongside new generations of his family, has grown the winery to be amongst Chile’s top 20 producers. The vineyards are located in the Curico Valley, where a mild-Mediterranean-like climate and varied soils offer superb conditions for growing many different varieties. Long, dry summers with radiant days and cool nights help the grapes attain the maximum potential. Winemaking is led by Benoit Fitte, who left his native France to join the winery in 2001.
