Viña Estampa began in 2001 as the result of the vision and entrepreneurial spirit of Miguel González-Ortiz, the winery’s owner and current president. From the beginning the winery focused on innovation and modern techniques to create world-class wines that would fully express the characteristics of the different varieties and their origin, the Colchagua Valley.

Estampa is the only winery in Chile that specializes in the production of blends, a technique that consists of carefully combining two or more fine varieties, each contributing its best characteristics, to create wines with tremendous balance and unique personality.

The creative spirit, the technical quality, and a great love of the land enable the creation of exceptional wines that are a true contribution to the Chilean wine industry and make Viña Estampa a world-class winery.

The Wines

LaCruz

Our icon LaCruz wine is a Carménère-based red blend from Marchigüe.The varieties that go into this wine come from micro-blocks in the vineyards that have a specific soil profile and that we treat very carefully throughout the entire process in order to achieve the maximum expression of terroir.

LaCruz stands out for its balanced tannic structure that presages perfect evolution in the bottle. The acidity level in this Carménère make it fresh, and it is persistent in both aroma and lingering finish. It was aged for 18–24 months in French oak barrels to gain complexity and character.

Gold Carmenere

The premium wine Gold is a Carménère-based red blend from Marchigüe. It comes from a selection of specific blocks with low production per hectare, which encourages greater concentration in the fruit.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are later added, and the blend is aged for 12–14 months in French oak barrels to gain complexity and character.

Del Viento Sauvignon Blanc

The grapes were hand picked, and the bunches were selected and deposited into
the press without destemming. Once fermentation was complete the lees were stirred constantly for
4 months to help liberate mannoproteins.
Color: bright and slightly greenish-yellow.
Aromas: Fruity and citrusy recalling lime and grapefruit. Subtle herbal notes over a
sweet aromatic backdrop.
Flavors: Saline on the palate with intense and refreshing acidity. Silky and complex
with good breadth and extended persistence. Pleasing sweet-and-salty finish.

Reserva Viognier- Chardonnay

This variety comes from 7 hectares of our own vineyards planted to massal selection in the Marchigüe sub-region. The soils have a certain amount of clay over granitic bedrock. This zone is more highly influenced by the coastal winds due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, just 60 km away.

A wine with much varietal typicity, very good aromatic persistence, and made in a fresh style.
