ARGENTINA & CHILE
CALITERRA, CHILE
COLCHAGUA VALLEY


 
Belonging to Great Rapel Valley located in the VI O’Higgins Region, this famous valley is characterized by its geography, its great diversity of soils and Mediterranean climate, where cool nights and gentle breezes from the coast of Pacific and the Andes, makes this region an ideal location for the production of high-end red varieties.  It forms the south-western half of the larger Rapel Valley region. Some of Chile's finest red wines are made in the valley, mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Syrah.

The Colchagua Valley boasts a textbook wine-growing climate: warm, but cooled by ocean breezes and dry, but refreshed by rivers and occasional rainfall. The region's desirable terroir, combined with persistent, focused marketing has made this one of Chile's most important wine regions, along with Maipo Valley in the north.

CALITERRA - FIRST JOINT VENTURE IN CHILEAN WINE INDUSTRY

Caliterra was established in 1996 as a partnership between the Robert G. Mondavi family and Viña Errázuriz, who sought to realize their shared dream of producing high quality wines that reflect the potential of the Chilean nature, terroir and fruit. The Colchagua Valley was chosen as the home of Caliterra Estate. Located in the heart of the valley, the estate of approximately 1,085 ha (2,681 acres) has 75% of untouched natural land and Mediterranean climate, where cool nights and gentle breezes temper the sun’s energy creating perfectly ripe, intense, concentrated and balanced wines. In early 2004 Viña Errázuriz acquired the Robert Mondavi family’s 50% share in Caliterra, with the goal to craft premium environmentally friendly wines from one of the world’s most important winegrowing regions.

▼ Eduardo Chadwick and Robert Mondavi - 1st Joint Venture in Chilean Wine Industry

The vineyards were first planted in 1997, with 210 ha (518.5 acres) of Merlot, Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah and smaller lots of Malbec. Of the initial plantations, today we have 55 ha under organic management (136 acres), where we produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenere.

Hillside plantings have been introduced to reap more of the estate’s potential. 32 ha (79 acres) were added to the initial vineyards in 2005 and 46 ha (113.6 acres) of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere and Viognier are being added during 2008 for a total of 288 ha (711.1 acres). Rocks are abundant in the estate’s medium textured soils that range from clay-loam to sandy-loam, making it possible to obtain wines of different tipicities.
