Inspired by his passion and love for the land and farming, Chilean Gonzalo Vial Vial decided to launch a new project: a winery that would honour Chile’s origins in its processes and wines. The story began in 1996, when Martín and Eduardo Silva, together with Aurelio Montes, began to look for land they could plant on. In 1998, they planted the first vines at the Trinidad property in the coastal part of the Maipo Valley, where the new winery was built.
Since then, in 2008, Viña Ventisquero went a step beyond, daring to plant its first vines in the Huasco Valley right in the midst of the Atacama Desert. That same year, Viña Ventisquero purchased a new estate in the coastal Leyda Valley.
In 2020, Viña Ventisquero became “Ventisquero Wine Estates”, a successful conglomerate that exports 1.5 million cases of Chilean wine around the world.
