A lovely pale yellow hue, our Apaltagua Reserva Chardonnay has flecks of green, and is clean and bright. Aromatically, it reveals hints of tropical fruit, such as passion fruit and pineapple. In the mouth it leaves a persistent note of lemon peel and melon.
The history of our company began 11 years ago, when the successful American businessman Edward Tutunjian was on vacation in Chile. He fell in love with the country and with its amazing wines. During this trip, he decided to invest in Chile and acquired his first vineyard called ¨La Pancora¨. It is situated in the 7th Region, near to Tricao in the prestigious Curico valley.
Subsequently, with the intention of increasing both the area under cultivation and the variety of wine grapes, he acquired a second property in an area called ¨Huaquen¨. This vineyard is situated in the locality of Curepto, an area known for the excellence of its grapes, which lies on the border of the Curico and Maule Valleys.
Due to the great success of his first wine launched in the American market under the name ’Pacifico Sur’, Mister Tutunjian decided to aquire ’Vinedos y Bodega Apaltagua’. These acquisitions are located in the 6th Region of the country in the marvelous Apalta Valley in Colchagua, where he produces his wines and from where he intends to become an important player in the Chilean and world wine industry.
Finally, in 2007, San Juan de Pirque, a country estate located in the Maipo Valley was added to complete the holdings. Here is our guest house, considered part of Chile’s national heritage, surrounded by woods of native centenarian trees.
