The Story

Errazuriz 1870 cellars exterior

The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley – 100km north of the capital.

Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, 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.

 “Our challenge at Errazuriz is to produce world class wines that capture the essence of the grapes and the spirit of the soil. Tradition, innovative and visionary spirit has been our inspiration since the beginning.”
