History

 

Since 1934, four generations of our family have specialized in producing wines that stand out because of their sense of place, purity and balance. To that end, we farm sustainably and use traditional vinification techniques in order to produce wines that represent us and faithfully reflect the vineyards they come from.

 

History

Since 1934, four generations of our family have specialized in producing wines that stand out because of their sense of place, purity and balance. To that end, we farm sustainably and use traditional vinification techniques in order to produce wines that represent us and faithfully reflect the vineyards they come from.

Pietro De Martino arrived in Chile from Italy in 1934 decided to seek a place that was as unique as the wine he dreamed of making. Isla de Maipo, with its alluvial soils and Mediterranean climate, offered the perfect conditions for making classic wines in a fresh, elegant style.

Today, with a track record spanning more than 80 years, the winery brings together the experience of the third generation of the family - represented by Pietro, Marco and Remo De Martino - with the dynamism and vision of the fourth generation - Marco Antonio and Sebastián De Martino - who, along with the winemaker Nicolás Pérez, lead the winery’s projects.

Milestones

• We labelled and exported Chile’s first Carmenere in 1996.
• We pioneered working in century-old vineyards in the Itata Valley, incorporating old winemaking techniques that set a precedent in the industry.
