Santa Digna Maquehua

D.O. Valle de Curicó

The first estate acquired by Miguel Torres Chile was FUNDO MAQUEHUA (Curicó Valley) in 1979. It is home to the production plant and aging cellars.

This 95-hectare estate, with stony land and good drainage, has particularly good conditions for growing red varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Manso de Velasco

D.O. Valle de Curicó

FUNDO SAN FRANCISCO NORTE (Curicó Valley) was acquired in 1984. It has 50 hectares of well-drained volcanic soil with sandy loam texture.

This is where the MANSO DE VELASCO vineyard is found, which owes its name to the Spanish governor who founded the city of Curicó in 1743. It grows 15 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Manso de Velasco is a very old vineyard, with vines dating back more than 115 years.

San Luis de Alico

D.O. Valle del Maule

In the late 1990s, Miguel Torres acquired SOCIEDAD AGRÍCOLA SAN LUÍS DE ALICO, with 40 hectares in San Clemente, where the Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Viognier varieties are planted. This land is used to produce organic grapes that are then used to make the Las Mulas line.

D.O. Valle de Curicó

Later, in 1991, FUNDO CORDILLERA (Curicó Valley) became part of our vineyards, adding 86 hectares of volcanic and clay loam soils.

This is the estate closest to the Andes, and therefore the one with the coldest climate, ideal for planting white varieties: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling.

Empedrado

D.O. Empedrado

FUNDO EMPEDRADO was added to the company’s properties in the year 2003. Located near Constitución, 180 kilometers south of Curicó.

This 364-hectare estate is the result of years searching for slate soils, known as “piedra laja” in Chile and “licorella” in Catalonia. The unique feature of this kind of stone is that it allows very good drainage and accumulates solar radiation, maintaining a warm mesoclimate (due to its black color).

After several years of research in the Empedrado area, it was decided to produce a special, unique Pinot Noir. Never before had a vinestock been planted in this kind of ground in Chile, which makes it particularly interesting.

The land is very rough, with incredibly steep slopes, so it is prepared using terraces so the vines can be planted. As a result, it produces low yields with a high concentration.

Huerta de Maule

D.O. Valle del Maule

In 2007, the winery acquired FUNDO SANTA ROSA and REQUEHUA, a new property in the coastal range of Chile’s VII Region.

It originally covered 28 hectares that were used to grow red varieties like Carménère and Malbec. However, it is the Carignan plantation that makes this estate truly special, as this is a variety that is not very well known in our home country of Spain, with special characteristics that amake it unique.

The Fundo now covers around 178 hectares, with 20.47 planted hectares. It has clay loam soil on coastal dryland.

D.O. Valle de Itata

After recovering age-old varieties such as the traditional Muscat and País, in 2014 Miguel Torres announced a strong commitment to the Itata Valley.

The family recently acquired a property of around 230 hectares near the city of Chillán, on the banks of the Ñuble River, where they will focus on planting red varieties, seeking the freshness provided by proximity to the Andes.

Coyhaique

Altos de Ñirehuao

Following its vision of sustainability and innovation, and taking climate change into account, in 2016 Miguel Torres Chile decided to take a chance on the southern tip of Chile and purchased 740 hectares in Patagonia.

The land, in the province of Coyhaique, is intended for a project for future generations of the Torres family that will initially focus on wine tourism and research.
