The valley of Maipo River is the oldest wine-producing zone
in Chile. This region has a Mediterranean-like climate,
its annual rain average is 350 mm and its soil is watered
by water coming from Los Andes Mountains.
In this valley different stocks are cultivated, one of the
best-known ones being Cabernet Sauvignon. Sol y Viento vineyards
are located in a quiet and beautiful zone called Isla de
Maipo, which is Southwest from Santiago, the capital of
Chile. This soil and special microclimate, plus the centennial
wine tradition of its inhabitants, create a terroir that
gives the wine a particular character.
In the last couple of decades, the tendency to take good
care of the environment while sowing the soil has become
stronger. This has also reached viticulture, both in the
treatment of the grape and the process of vinification,
avoiding the use of chemical compounds and thus benefiting
The organic concept needs of a rigorous way of cultivating
the grapevine, following the natural cycles of plants and
soils and protecting the environment from external pollution.
Only by following these requirements our wine can be internationally
certified and commercialized as organic.
