In 1951 Aldo Olivier Granola’s family moved to Chile and in 1971 he started planting grapevines for Pisco production. Around that time Aldo became convinced of the potential for producing superb wines in this semiarid valley. The Falernia project was born after he and his cousin Giorgio Flessati, famed Italian oenologist, joined forces. Falernia is an innovative venture given that it is Chile’s most northerly wine estate, a considerable distance from the country’s main winegrowing areas. The driving force has been a passion for the wine and the challenge of transforming a tract of desert into a green vineyard with enormous potential for producing premium wines. They use the latest technology and have the support of agronomists from Chile’s top universities and worldrenowned oenologists.
