In Situ Family Vineyards are located in central Chile, northeast of Santiago, at the mountainous eastern edge of the Aconcagua Valley. The Aconcagua Valley is among the few terroirs worldwide that are capable of producing wines of the highest quality.
Our vineyards are situated along the Aconcagua River, nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the sun and breezes create the temperature variability needed for grapes to reach optimal ripeness. The noontime breeze cools the vineyard, allowing expression of the complex and elegant aromas that characterize Aconcagua Valley wines.
At In Situ Family Vineyards, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact on both the community and the broader environment. We therefore use sustainable vineyard management and ecological winemaking and waste treatment technologies. Current sustainable practices include the use of cover crops between rows, manure and compost, and biodegradable reeds to tie back pruned canes.
In Situ Family Vineyards are pioneer in hillside-vineyard planting. The steep Paidahuén vineyard, planted in 1994, takes full advantage of the unique combination of rocky soils and sun exposure. The shallow hillside soil (30–60 cm) was created simultaneously with the Andes Mountains during the Cretaceous Period (65–99 million years ago). In the millennia since, rock fragmentation has created a mixture of eroded rock and clay with excellent drainage capacity—the perfect combination for growing high-quality wine grapes with concentrated fruit flavors.
