Estampa stands out for being one of the pioneers in Paredones and Marchigüe appellations, and also for bringing to Chile exclusive consultants that have envisioned long-term commitment to respecting pruning, healthy vineyard management and the useful life of plants. All these aspects have guided Estampa towards a sustainable production.

Colchagua

Estampa is located in Colchagua Valley, one of the Chile's best-known wine appellations. This wine region has a mild Mediterranean climate and its prestigious wines have gained worldwide recognition. Different areas have been explored as well as several grape varieties have been successfully planted showing the versatility of this valley.
In 2005, the international press recognized Colchagua Valley as the "Best Wine Region in the World".

Estampa has more than 400 hectares (990 acres) of its own vineyards in 3 different areas: Palmilla, Paredones and Marchigüe. All of them have technified drip irrigation system. Each vineyard has a particular terroir that gives unique characteristics to our wines.

Marchigüe

The coastal cold influence makes the maturation period slower, favoring the intensity of aromas and character of the wines. Within the vineyard there is a great variability of subsoils. There are areas with a greater presence of granite, cornerstones in the process of mineralization and quartz and others with red granites and a high presence of iron. The sandy textures are mixed with various proportions of clay in the profile.

Location 8 km. (5 miles) in straight line from the Pacific Ocean
Vineyards planted 2009
Total planted area 22 hectares (54 acres)
Maine grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Riesling and Gewürztraminer
Climate Mediterranean, strongly influenced by the Humboldt current. The cold winds from the coast moderate the temperature and favor grapes’ healthy conditions. The average temperature during the maturation stage is 22 °C and the maximum hardly ever exceeds 28 °C. Average annual rainfall is 250 to 300 mm. Given the low thermal accumulation, the vigor of the vineyards is low, the clusters size and berries are small with a slow maturation period, which favors the aromatic expression and character of the wines.
Subsoil Granite subsoils with the presence of rocks in the process of decomposition and mineralization. There is great variability between the different blocks in the vineyards. In some areas we find abundant granite and small quartz gravels, in others blocks the textures have more sand mixed with different proportions of clay.

Paredones

The cold winds from the coast moderate temperature and allow low thermal accumulation.
Thanks to this condition, the vineyards vigor is low, the bunches size and berries are small with a slow maturation period, which favors the aromatic expression and character of the wines.
