About Ravanal Wine Estate:
Founded in 1936 by Teodoro Ravanal, Viña Ravanal is one of the oldest wine estates in the Colchagua Valley. The vineyards, located in Placilla and San Jose de Manantiales next to the estate, are family owned and all harvesting is done manually. Viña Ravanal is particularly proud of the grapes produced in its ‘Centenary Vineyards’ where the vines are more than 100 years old. Colchagua Valley is now recognised as one of the great wine producing regions in Chile. The vineyard area is surrounded by mountains benefiting the slower maturation process. The soil is deep and clayish which enables Ravanal to produce a range of full-bodied and robust red wines with attractive and long lasting aromas, while white wines achieve high intensity and finesse. These conditions define the ideal terroir of the Colchagua Valley.
