Viña Ravanal

Come to Ravanal and live a centenary experience in Colchagua valley

About the winery
Ravanal is one of the most traditional wineries in Colchagua valley. It was founded more than 50 years ago by Mario Ravanal, who is today the oldest oenologist in Chile. It offers a complete line of fine wines that are exported worldwide. Their most important diference is that they are a result of a delicate work of a family of oenologists. Aditionally to this portfolio of wine, we offer a variety of touristic activities such as unforgetable guided visits to our centenary vineyards that are complemented with tastings of our internationally awarded wines. You could also enjoy a Picnic surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Colchagua valley. Our wide variety of wines are a result of a perfect marriage between oenologic experience and family tradition. That is what we want you to experince at Ravanal winery.

History & Geography
Mario Ravanal was born in Ligüeimo, a small agricultural town located in the heart of the wine-growing area of Chile in 1926. He is the eldest of 8 siblings, with a farmer father, who from a very young age instilled in me a love for the countryside and its vineyards. He studied Agronomical Engineering at the University of Chile, and in 1960 continued his postgraduate studies in Oenology and Viticulture in France at the Universities of Montpellier and Bordeaux. In 1965, on a visit to his parents, he found out about the sale of a beautiful property in the Placilla district; motivated by the vineyards that were already in production in those years, he bought what is currently “Viña Ravanal”; at the present with the invaluable heritage of having vineyards that are more than one hundred years old. His sons, Carmen Paz, Pía and Mario Sebastián, joined my path, oenologists who have continued his work, love and hard work for wine; adding youth, strength and innovation to Viña Ravanal.
