Cooler than cool New Zealander Brett Jackson is very much settled in Chile and much of Valdivieso's success in recent years has been down to his efforts. Based in Lontue, Valdivieso has a wealth of vineyards and the quality of the terroir is shown by the Single Vineyard wines. Every Valdivieso wine encapsulates everything that Chile is famous for: rich, exciting flavours and smooth, glossy textures. The wines deserve every award they have accumulated over the recent years. Valdivieso’s history goes back to 1879, time when Don Alberto Valdivieso founded Champagne Valdivieso S.A., the first sparkling wine house of Chile and of South America. In the early 1980’s they then began to produce still wines and Valdivieso never looked back obtaining excellent results and becoming the most awarded Chilean winery in the history of the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux.
