Viña Echeverria is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the
Echeverria family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back
to the 1700s, Viña Echeverria is as much today, as always, driven by a shared
passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña
Echeverria combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with
a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce a range of over 20 quality wines from
nine different grape varieties. It has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery
status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.
The vineyards are located in the coastal Leyda Valley. It is situated between the
towering Andes Mountains and the cool Pacific Ocean. Intense sunshine is
tempered by cooling sea breezes allowing the grapes to achieve outstanding fruit
aromas and exceptional colour concentration. The warm dry days and cold nights
encourage a long growing season, which is ideally suited to produce healthy vines
and grapes. Working with a model of micro viticulture, each plot, of no more than
half a hectare, is identified according to its terroir and microclimate and planted
accordingly. The rows are planted in an east-westerly direction, to maximise the sun's
exposure. Grapes are subjected to specific pruning, irrigation, canopy management
and harvesting, which results in grapes of optimum quality and flavour. The soils are
alluvial in origin, mostly clay loam and deep with good drainage. Manual harvest.
The grapes were carefully selected before being crushed, destemmed and chilled to
8°C. Cold skin contact maceration took place for two to four hours at controlled
temperatures of between 8° to 10°C, to extract colour, flavours and aromas, resulting
in a more complex wine. The grapes were gently pressed by pneumatic press; only
the free run juice was vinified. The must was clarified by static sedimentation at 8°C
for 24 to 36 hours, prior to vinification. It was fermented with selected yeast in stainless
steel tanks at temperatures of between 11° to 15°C for 25 days, before being stored
on its fine lees for two months. The wine was made in an unoaked style to showcase
the purity of fruit.
