Valdivieso’s history goes back to 1879, when Don Alberto Valdivieso founded Champagne Valdivieso S.A., the first sparkling wine house in South America. In the early 1980s they then began to produce still wines and, ever since, Valdivieso has obtained outstanding results and has become the most awarded Chilean winery in the history of the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux.
Well-travelled Kiwi winemaker, Brett Jackson, has settled in Chile and much of Valdivieso’s success in recent years can be credited to his talent. Based in Lontue, the company has a wealth of vineyards and the quality of the terroir is expressed by the single-vineyard wines. The whole range encapsulates everything that Chile excels at: rich, vibrant flavours and smooth, glossy textures – and the wines deserve the multitude of gongs they have picked up in recent years.
