The Aconcagua valley lies in the shelter of the high mountain, after which it is named, on a narrow strip of land, about 300km south of the Coquimbo vineyard regions of Limari and Elqui, and only 70km north of Santiago. The Aconcagua mountain is the highest in the Americas and towers over the region, offering not only scenic beauty, but protection to the vineyards, irrigation from the melting snow, and the altitude in the lower slopes to grow grapes that will benefit from the higher land, the cool night temperatures and the influence of the ocean breezes.

This is where one of the pioneers of the Chilean wine industry, Don Maximiliano Errazuriz brought French vines to Chile, and the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah dominate and perform superbly here, with the high altitude of the vineyards close to the mountain and the ever-present influence of the cooling Pacific.
