Santiago Achurra Larrain founded his winery in 1961 and alongside new generations of his family, has grown it to one of Chile’s top producers.

The vineyards are located in the Curico Valley, where a mild-Mediterranean-like climate and varied soils offer superb conditions for growing many different varieties. Long, dry summers with radiant days and cool nights help the grapes attain the maximum potential. The winemaking is led by Frenchman Benoit Fitte, who joined the winery in 2001.

The grapes are all hand-harvested from vines that are a minimum of 40 years old, which lends a deep flavour and minerality to the wine. It has lovely red berry fruit flavours with notes of fragrant mint and smooth tannins. Following fermentation the wine spent 12 months in old French oak barrels which has added a strong spicy edge.

This is ideal with richer poultry dishes, roasted pork, or even a meaty beef brisket. Try it with savoury mushroom dishes too as well as charred vegetable dishes.

More Information



Chile is one of South America’s most significant wine producers. It produces a vast range of wine styles grown in a surprising range of terroirs.

Originally planted with international varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet, it was discovered in the 1990s that much of the country’s Merlot was actually a nearly extinct variety called Carménère.
