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.
It is located at Curico Valley, the heartland of Chile's winemaking zone. Curico Valley is one of the best places for producing wine in Chile. It has very intense sunlight, a long summer, and well drained soils. The vineyards are located in the area of Molina, which receives pure water from the Andes mountains for irrigation.
They work with a model of microviticulture, which separates the vineyard in 200 small areas. Each area is managed like an individual vineyard, so they can obtain the best quality of each grape of each vine in these 200 areas.
