The grapes for this wine are picked from two blocks that were planted in 1999 and 2002. Block 1 has a south easterly orientation and is planted with clone 242 whereas Block 20 has a north easterly orientation, but is also planted with clone 242. The vines are trained to a Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) system. Careful canopy management is undertaken, with 18 shoots per metre and two bunches per shoot, in order to protect the fruit from too much sunshine exposure. This helps to enhance the freshness and fruit flavour concentration in the berries. The vines are grown in granite and alluvial soils.

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 elegant wines.
