The Santa Rita vineyard is considered one of the oldest and most traditional vineyards in Chile. It is located only 40 kilometers from Santiago. You can do a wine tour to tour its vineyards, main house and gardens.
It was founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernández Concha who introduced French strains and obtained results much superior to those obtained in Chile at that time. Since then, the vineyard began to take on cultural and traditional importance.
In 1980, the Claro group and the Owens Illinois company acquired ownership of the vineyard and introduced many technological advances and different techniques of winemaking that at that time were totally unknown in Chile.
