History & Geography
Our History In 1984 Bruno Prats and Paul Pontallier well known Agronomists and winemakers in the region of Bordeaux, France, start looking in Chile for a high quality terroir to create an original and unique vineyard. They partnered with a mutual friend, Felipe de Solminihac, Agronomist and Chilean Winemaker of French origin. In 1990 they purchased 18 hectares in the city of Santiago. Located at the foot of the Andes, the “Quebrada de Macul”, it is in the historic heart of the Maipo Valley. The first plantations were vines with Bordeaux origin that had been present in Chile since the late nineteenth century. The wine cellar was completed in 1993. In January 2002 Ghislain de Montgolfier, Agronomist from the Champagne Region and longtime friend of the founders, became the fourth partner, or as he says, recalling the novel by Alexandre Dumas, the fourth Musketeer.
