Winery Info/ Brand
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva.
Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
Region Info/ Origin
Puente Alto is a wine-producing region within the Maipo Valley on the southern fringes of the Chilean capital of Santiago. The area was one of the first in Chile to be recognised as having a distinct terroir for the production of wine, in a country that is historically better known for high production than for high quality. The Cabernet Sauvignon that is produced in Puente Alto is held in high regard and commands some of the highest prices in Chile.
