History

Winemaker Francois Lurton and his brother Jacques had been making wine in Chile since 1992, but it was only in 2000 that they stumbled across a stunning spot in Colchagua where the influence of the nearby ocean cools the summer heat of the valley. The brothers combined seven local estates to form one new property of 200 acres and began to experiment with different grape varieties to see what suited the terroir here.In 2013 they went one step further by converting their 30 acres of vines to biodynamic agriculture under the Demeter certification.
