Odfjell’s quest is to make wines that are a true expression of the terroir. Our low-yield vineyards are handled with individual care. We hand-pick the grapes in order to ensure the fruit arrives at the winery as intact as possible.
We started planting vineyards in our Maipo Estate in 1994. Today, after 20 years, we have 85 hectares planted in Maipo. Including our vineyards in Cauquenes, Lontué, and Colchagua, we have a total surface area of 115 hectares being cultivated, planted with a wide array of grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and old Carignan vines from Cauquenes.
Odfjell is committed to being a leader in progressive vineyard management, and we are dedicated to elevating the image and practice of viticulture in Chile. The goal of this work is to produce the best possible wines in the vineyards, while maintaining our long-term commitment to sustainable agriculture and environmental winemaking practices. For this reason, our vineyards are 100% organic and we have also recently begun biodynamic farming.
