Apalta is located 170 Kilometers South West of Santiago in the Colchagua Valley.  The Vineyard is situated on a North to South exposure, which is quite rare in Chile.  This geography is responsible for the conditions that ensure balance for our vines and a slow ripening for the grapes.  Apalta has special meso-climate that is different from the rest of Colchagua Valley. Its climate could be described as Semi-dry Mediterranean; with a winter only rainy season and a long dry summer season. 

85% Carmenere, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. 12 months in French oak.
