Chile is known as a paradise for the production of wine, given its very unique geographical barriers in Latin America and the world; the Atacama desert in the North, the majestic mountains of the Andes to the East, the Antarctic ice to the South and cold currents from the Pacific Ocean to the West.
The history of wine making in Chile dates back to the 16th century with the introduction of wine grapes by Spanish conquistadors in the new world.
Within Chile’s different wine valleys, the Valley of Curicó, located 180 kilometers to the South of Santiago, Chile’s capital, stands out as one of the most prestigious locations in the country, being the valley that has the highest amount of varieties planted throughout the country, which speaks of its diversity of terroirs and optimal conditions for the production of wines.
The producers and partners of Lautaro Wines have their fields located in the vicinity of the small town of “Sagrada Familia” (located just 15 kilometers of the city of Curicó) and with joint plantations close to 180 hectares. Most of the Lautaro Wines have a Denomination of Origin “Lontué Valley”, which is a sub-Valley of Curicó.
