Ventolera is an exciting new venture between founder Vicente Izquierdo and one of
Chile's top winemakers Stefano Gandolini. The vineyard, which was planted in 1999,
is located in the region of the Leyda Valley, just six kilometres from the Pacific Ocean.
The area is being singled out as being Chile's newest and most radical cool-climate
wine region, which is strongly influenced by the cooling effects of the Humboldt
Current that flows up from the Antarctic. ‘Ventolera’ is a Spanish word which refers to
this strong sea wind; its cooling influence is instrumental in producing wonderfully
The grapes are grown in two blocks that are south east facing. Canopy
management in the vineyard ensures protection of the grapes from extreme sun
exposure. The high humidity level combined with the cooling effect from the sea
ensures a moderate climate for the vines. The vines are grown in heat-retaining
granite and alluvial soil.
100% Sauvignon Blanc hand selected grapes from specific blocks within Ventolera's
estate vineyard. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to retain the
freshness, aromatics and a fruity style.
Zesty citrus aromas and an attractive hint of nettles, lead to a real depth of flavour
