About the Winery

The history of Chilean wine dates to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, but the industry underwent a French revolution of sorts in the 19th century with the arrival of new grape varieties and vinification techniques.

Mr. Melchor Concha y Toro was at the vanguard of that movement and brought noble French varieties from Bordeaux. He planted those vines in the Maipo Valley in 1883 and laid the foundations of what is now
Viña Concha y Toro
