About Bodegas Y Vinedos O. Fournier:

The O. Fournier Group was founded in 2000. Their main objective is to become an international group focused on high-quality wines. Their plan is to produce approximately 1.5 million bottles in different regions: Argentina, Chile, Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Douro (Portugal). To date, the group owns estates in Mendoza and Ribera del Duero. In total, the Group owns over 435 hectares of land of which 16 hectares are planted with vineyards of up to 57 years of age.

In 2007, after a three-year search for the best vineyards and terroirs in Chile, the O. Fournier Group commenced its winemaking practices. In Chile, O. Fournier has selected the most exciting areas to develop vineyards and produce wines. The group has acquired properties in Lo Abarca (San Antonio Valley) and Loncomilla (Maule Valley).
