Don Maximiano Errazuriz founded Vina Errazuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago, Chile. Recognizing that this valley, with its hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Eduardo Chadwick, the fifth generation of his family to lead this historic estate. Eduardo has overseen the modernization of its winemaking technology while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Errazuriz has earned a reputation as one of the premier estates in Chile. Its philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, “From the best land, the best wine. As an estate winery, Errazuriz strives to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico valleys, to harvesting by hand, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on delicate handling, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity. It is this dynamism and passion that has made Errazuriz such an internationally respected producer.
Technical notes
The grapes were hand-picked, destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel. Fermentation was followed by post-fermentation maceration which lasted 12-20 days depending on the development of each lot. A third of the wine aged for six-eight months in French and American oak, then stabilized and lightly filtered.

Producer
Established in 1999, Matetic is owned and operated by Jorge and Cristian Matetic. The biodynamically farmed, certified organic vineyards are located in Rosario Valley, a subdivision of San Antonio Valley. There are two distinct types of soil in the valley on the hillsides the soil is redbrick in color, thin, with a superficial layer of clay and decomposed granite below. On the valley floor, the soil composition has a deeper layer of granite, red clay on top over a layer of darker colored soil. The fruit is hand-picked and estate bottled. Winemaker Paula Cardena Saez began as an assistant for Errazuriz and William Cole Vineyards. She is assisted by winemaker Julio Bastias and consultant Ken Bernards.
