Since 1874, in the heart of the Maipo valley, Viña Tarapacá has been crafting unique wines of outstanding quality. These estate bottled wines earned their first award in the US in 1876, and have been obtaining awards ever since.
Our wines begin with the most appropriate soil selection that will match the needs of each varietal to best respect its characteristics. The vineyards are properly managed with techniques that include determining the correct crop load per vine, irrigation methods, trellising style, and vigor management, etc. This care and dedication continues in the winery, with the enthusiasm and devotion of our winemakers in every step of the vinification process, from reception to fermentation and aging, in order to produce high quality, complex, and well-balanced wines.
Tarapacá wines display their maximum potential, not only in Isla de Maipo vineyards, within Maipo Valley, but also in other valleys because our winemaking team continuously seeks out new lands in distant valleys where the different varieties best express their natural characteristics. Our winemaking philosophy is aimed at making wines that faithfully reflect Chile’s tremendous soil and climate conditions for grape growing.
Our Viña Tarapacá winemaking team is committed to take the maximum advantage of the soil conditions, topography, and climate from each one of the different vineyard blocks for the greatest expression of the grapes, which are planted where they would develop themselves better.
