Wine in the Diaz family goes back to the nineteenth century.
Don Manuel Joaquín Díaz Escudero Alvarez de Toledo, grandfather of the owners of Loma Larga, personally brought French strains from his successive tours of Paris and Bordeaux, which were planted with the help of French winemakers in his estate “Chacra Victoria”, now located in the heart of Santiago city. With the intention of keeping this wine tradition alive, which brought their ancestors to produce high quality wines, as noted in the wine exhibition in Paris in 1889, the family began planting vines in their estate in Casablanca in 1999. Previously, they started studying the climate and soil that led them to discover the big potential of the terroir of Loma Larga, which became the emblem of cool climate wines producers in Chile.
Our Goal is to make honest and natural wines which expresses the terroir of Loma Larga.
Our challenge is to continually explore the terroir of Loma Larga. Studies and experiences during more than 13 years allowed us to differentiate ourselves from the vast majority of Chilean wines. 148 ha over 711 have been planted in 1999, some of them were typical of the Casablanca valley and others, definitively non-traditional, such as Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
This pioneering idea has been successful from the beginning and has been supported by several local and international critics who discovered that Casablanca wines had a unusual profile with great freshness and big aromatic potential.
Today we are recognized as the leading vineyard in cool climate red wines in Chile.
