To achieve this we have developed production processes and quality guarantees that includes the following: selection of terroirs, grape varieties and clones, vineyard architecture, advanced irrigation systems, organic management and systems for monitoring the growth, ripening and development of the fruit.
"The aim of our line wines is to express the virtues of the vineyard from which the grapes come with the least possible interference in the winemaking. We have achieved this thanks to the meticulous work carried out in our vineyards, where the key factor was the decision to plant each variety in its most appropriate place, bearing in mind the characteristics of the climate and soil. Another key factor is the differentiation of the micro-terroirs that exist within each vineyard, so that we can carry out specific vine-growing work in such as way as to obtain high-quality grapes. As a result, our wines are characterized by great balance in all aspects, plus an important structure in accordance with each variety, soil and climate in the vineyard. What we are searching for in each of our lines are harmonious, genuine wines that are an excellent representation of their type."

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.
The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.
White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
