Here is a description of their vineyards from their website:
“San Juan del Pirque
A short drive from Santiago, at the foot of the Andes Mountains is located San Juan de Pirque. This place is distinguished by the quality of its red wines, mainly of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety.
Our neoclassical styled guest house, built in 1875, boasts interior and exterior stucco walls exclusively hand-painted by an Italian artist and a beautiful centennial park of native and European trees.
This year began the plantation of vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah varieties.
Viñedos y Bodegas Apaltagua
Apalta is situated in the center of the Colchagua Valley, a few kilometers from the town of Santa Cruz. The Apalta Valley is made up of 800 hectares of grapes and other crops. This valley is characterized by its excellent conditions for the development of wine grapes, which has been demonstrated by the great wines that are produced in the area. This has led to the Apalta Valley being known as the “valley blessed by the hand of God”.
Our vineyards of ‘La Pancora’, are situated in the renowned Chilean winegrowing zone of the Curico Valley. The vineyards are located specifically in the smaller Trincao Valley area, a place which benefits from being surrounded by mountains and from the maritime influences of the Pacific Ocean 100 Km away. This combination of climates, maritime and mountain, creates a unique microclimate for the production of wine producing grapes of inimitable characteristics.
The vineyards of Huaquen are situated between the Curico and Maule Valleys, in the region of Curepto. After visiting the country’s many different valleys, this spot was selected by our professionals for its climatic conditions, dominated by a marked difference in its day and night time temperatures and for its geography. The vineyards of Huaquen are characterized by their establishment on low ridges located at the foot of the coastal mountain range, which provides an excellent solar exposure ideal for the production of quality red grapes.”
