At the foot of the Andes in the Rapel Valley, Viña Los Boldos is one of Chile’s oldest wineries, established in 1850, and planted with over 620 acres of vines in rocky soil reminiscent of the great vineyards in Europe. With the wine making expertise of a French oenologist and veteran advisor Pedro Parra, the estate began producing wines that play with the terroir of the Cachapoal Andes Valley enhanced by Los Boldos’ unique, heavily rock soils.
In 2008, Viña Los Boldos became part of Sogrape family. With the arrival of chief winemaker Victor Arce Gatica in 2016, Viña Los Boldos continues to combine the extraordinary terroir of the region, resulting from the combined forces of land and sea, with traditional French winemaking techniques. In recent years Chateau Los Boldos Grand Reserva wines have received coveted recognition from leading editors at Wine Spectator. As for the name, Los Boldos is a type of tree found in the region, whose stomach- soothing leaves are used for tea.
Viña Los Boldos is 100% certified sustainable in all three qualifying categories: the vineyard, the winery, and social responsibility, as it supports local residents with year-long programming and employment.
