Concha y Toro | Maipo Valley
Winemaker - Enrique Tiradohttp://www.conchaytoro.com
Founded in 1883 by Don Melchor, Concha y Toro has a long tradition in winemaking. A successful businessman, he regularly travelled Europe. From there, he took vine cuttings from vineyards in Bordeaux and brought them back to his estate in the Maipo Valley. From there, the rest they say is history.
With a long term vision and an on-going quest for excellence, Concha y Toro has led the development of Chilean wine on the international stage. Concha y Toro is Chile’s leading wine producer and their wines can be found in over 135 countries. They are the second largest vineyard owners in the world with more than 10,000 hectares of planted vineyards.
With vineyards and wineries in the best wine regions across Chile, Concha y Toro has complete control over the vineyards and winemaking quality. An intense dedication to the vineyard and on-going research allows Concha y Toro to determine the best terroirs for each grape variety and to produce outstanding wines with worldwide acclaim.
In 2011 and 2012 Concha y Toro were voted the most admired wine brand in the world by highly acclaimed magazine Drinks International. In 2010, Concha y Toro became the official sponsors of Manchester United.
