Emiliana

Chile

Emiliana Winery was founded by the Guilisasti family in 1986. Today the estate’s 1,000 hectares are located across some of Chile’s premier vine-growing regions, led by brothers Rafael and José Guilisasti.

MEET THE WINEMAKERS 

 

 

Emiliana’s vineyards are spread across Chile’s finest grape-growing valleys, including Rapel, Colchagua, Maipo and Casablanca. These valleys enjoy varied climates but are all heavily influenced by the cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Andes mountains to the west.

 

Beginning in 1998 the Guilisasti family have been converting their vineyards to organic and biodynamic farming. Today Emiliana are the world’s largest producer of estate-grown organic wines. The main white grape varieties grown are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier, whilst the red varieties include Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Winemakers Noelia Orts and Álvaro Espinoza produce a range of organic, minimum-intervention wines in their modern wineries, using stainless steel and high-grade oak barrels.
