Founded in 1997, Almaviva came into being as a result of a meeting between two legends of the wine-growing industry: Baronne Philippine de Rothschild and Alfonso Larrain, Vice-President of Vina Concho y Toro, a Chilean estate.
Symbol of a mix of cultures, each vintage clearly expresses the richness of the Franco-Chilean heritage of Almaviva: the soil and unique climate of the Maipo valley and the know-how of the Mouton-Rothschild team. With wet and cold winters, and summers full of hot days and fresh nights, the Sauvignon Cabernet – common grape type for the mixing of this vintage – is able to develop under these ideal conditions in order to transform it into a great wine.
In a wine cellar of 4200m², the Almaviva wine benefits from the latest technological innovations with regards to wine-making. The success of this wine led to the creation of the "Primer Orden" name, similar to the concept of "Classic Vintages ". "Emblematic", "out of the ordinary", " subtle and selected ", incredible ", these are a few of the many descriptions given by the press to describe this Chilean wine. With a strong mixed heritage, including reference to the work of Beaumarchais, the marriage of Figaro, and ancestral symbols of the history of Chile, Almaviva (literally " Living soul") thus keeps its promise: " to offer the world pleasure and perfection ".
