History

Don Maximiano Errázuriz founded Viña Errázuriz in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 60 miles north of the capital city, Santiago. Recognizing that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano’s descendant, Eduardo Chadwick. He is the fifth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business.

Eduardo has overseen the modernization of the winemaking technology at this historic estate while maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality, Errázuriz is recognized as one of the top quality producers in Chile, earning top ratings from all major wine publications.
