Terroir

The grapes come from our vineyards located in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago, in the Maule Valley. This place has a Mediterranean-like climate, where winter rains are normal and summers are dry, with marked temperature variations between day and night.
This allows the grapes to obtain the development of mature tannins, as well as excellent aromas and superb concentration of color and flavor. The soils are a combination of sandy soil and volcanic ash. The ground is flat, therefore the vines receive an excellent exposure to sunlight.

Infrastructure

More than 14,000,000lts capacity in stainless steel tanks and storage in French and American oak barrels.
We own 15,740 m2 built in winery, cellar, production and dry goods storage . We are constantly investing to improve the infrastructure, technology and winemaking capacity.

 Winemaking Tradition

The Spanish conquerors planted the first vines in Chile during the XVI century. Centuries later, Don Pedro Etcheberry, french farmer, began the family tradition.
Following his ancestors, Pedro Félix de Aguirre and Ana María Etcheberry founded Bodegas y Viñedos De Aguirre S.A., a 100% family business, with a strong french agricultural tradition and based on fundamental pillars such as trust, commitment, respect for the environment and teamwork.
Today, the seven siblings of the latest generation of the De Aguirre Etcheberry family are actively involved with passion and dedication to produce wines of high quality at a competitive price worldwide.
Bodegas y Viñedos De Aguirre S.A., today VDA, Viña de Aguirre, works hard so that in the future the new family generations follow the trail started by its founders.
