Undurraga Maipo

This estate was founded by Don Francisco Undurraga Vicuña in 1885 but is now co-owned by the Picciotti family from Colombia and José Yuraszeck, a Chilean entrepreneur, and between them they have now formed a holding company, Grupo Vinos del Pacifico, that owns Undurraga, Volcanes deChile, a small production winery and TIB, which specialises in […]

Santa Rita Maipo

Long-established, traditional old Chilean winery which had a wake-up call in the late 1990s and is beginning to produce an increasingly fine range of midmarket and premium wines. The 120 range offers some reasonable straightforward easy drinking; the reds are a better bet generally than the whites. Reserva whites are sound but no more; the […]

Odfjell Vineyards Maipo

Daniel and Laurence Odfjell have established vineyards in Maipo very recently. By Chilean standards this is a small, almost boutique style of operation with a production of fewer than 40,000 cases a year across their range. Winemaking consultancy input is provided by Californian winery operator Paul HOBBS, as well as French enologist Arnaud Hereu. There […]

Viña Pérez Cruz Maipo

The first vintage at this winery based on the higher slopes of the Maipo was only 2002. They have established themselves though among the best from this, the oldest of Chile’s red wine regions. Their Liguai farm is blessed with finely drained alluvial soils with a high rock content and the resulting grapes offer real […]

Haras de Pirque Maipo

Eduardo Matte acquired this 600 ha estate in the higher reaches of the Maipo Valley in 1991 and over the next couple of years planted 120 ha of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenère as well as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The property is perhaps better known as one of Chile’s best thoroughbred horse breeding studs. […]

Viñedo Chadwick Maipo

A recently established premium label owned by ERRAZURIZ, with a vineyard located on the northern bank of the Maipo river into the foothills of the Andes. The 300 ha property has been in the Chadwick family since 1945. The vineyard covers a mere 15 ha of the best stony/clay soils. It is now planted to […]

De Martino Maipo

This Maipo based winery produces a fine range of reds and whites not just from the home vineyards but from a number of other areas as well. The winery and its new winemaker Eduardo Jordan place considerable emphasis in finding the best potential areas for each varietal. The Estate wines as is the case with […]

Carmen Maipo

Carmen is owned by the large SANTA RITA operation. Production here itself is not inconsiderable with vineyard holdings now spread across many of the major regions. As a result an extensive range is produced, both red and white. The regular whites and particularly the reds are well-crafted and full of vibrant, ripe and crunchy fruit. […]

Almaviva Maipo

This is a joint venture between CONCHA Y TORO and Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (MOUTONROTHSCHILD). The ambitious project is aimed at producing one of, possibly the finest red wine yet from Chile. Considerable investment has already gone into both vineyards and winery. Almaviva is undoubtedly impressive but as yet falls a little way short of […]
