About Viña Echeverria
Active in Chilean agriculture, grape growing, and winemaking since 1740, the Echeverria family established their current vineyards and winery in 1923 on the outskirts of Molina, a town in the Curicó Valley. Here, they grow grapes from French pre-phylloxera rootstocks, on their 80 ha of vineyards.
Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London.
Eventually, the family started purchasing grapes, to complement and build complexity to their wines. “We realized that to succeed and be different, we needed to be open,” says Roberto Echeverria, the Technical Director and Chief Winemaker, whose first solo vintage appeared on the market in 2001. With sustainable practices in the vineyard, Echevarria produces wine for almost every palate, while embracing a philosophy that’s based on consistency.
The ‘No es Pituko’ range represents a radical departure from the rest of the more traditional Echeverría wines, both in look and make-up, being vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage.
