about us

We are a Guild Association that represents the vineyards producing bottled fine wine from the Colchagua Valley DO.

We were pioneers in the creation of an Association of Vineyards with the aim of promoting, promoting and protecting viticulture development of all those vineyards having the purpose of producing fine wines with the Colchagua Valley Denomination of Origin (DO), both in Chile and around the world.
Moved by the eagerness and enthusiasm of making Colchagua known to both Chileans and foreigners, in 1996, the first wine route in Chile was created, becoming the Guild Association in June 2011.

Today, the Guild Association of Colchagua Vineyards is formed by 19 member vineyards, with plantations and wineries in the Valley.
The Guild Association of Colchagua Vineyards works based on 5 essential pillars that define all our actions: Wine, Quality, Integration, Entertainment and Identity.

MISSION

Our mission is to promote the integral development of the Colchagua Valley as a producer of diverse and high-quality wines by promoting its labels nationally and internationally. In addition, to promote the enotourist development of the area and articulate the actors involved in it, always within the framework of our pillars: Wine, Quality, Integration, Entertainment and Identity.

VISION

To be the leading national viticulture and enotourism valley, recognized in Chile and abroad as producers of diverse and high-quality wines, in an entertaining valley that contributes to the promotion of Chilean wine as a great Chilean ambassador in the world. Coordinating all the vineyards of the valley in the promotion of their wines and the actors of enotourism in the promotion of the destination. This Valley has always had a purely agricultural activity. Its wonderful climate, the use of state-of-the-art technology, and the tireless creativity of man have allowed the wine industry to develop impressively with a production of wines that has reached the best world standards. The sum of geographical characteristics generates unique microclimates ideal for the production of different varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere, Malbec, and Syrah are just a few, which today is reflected in the high quality of its wines, awarded through important international prizes and recognized in prestigious magazines and publications specialized in the wine industry.

OUR PILLARS

QUALITY

We strive to reach the highest quality standards in all our wines and initiatives. Quality in everything we do is our hallmark.

THE WINE

What unites and mobilizes us is the fruit of the vines and the work of all those who make possible a bottle of wine with DO Colchagua. Our wine is the engine and reflection of an area with its own identity, where a diversity of actors come together in a wide territory. We produce high quality wines that make us stand out in the national and world wine market.

INTEGRATION

We must work together, privileging initiatives that benefit us all. We are a valley where the entire ecosystem that is generated around the production of wines coexist and participate, regardless of the size of winemakers, hoteliers, restaurants, artisans, among others, come together to strengthen the Colchagua Valley.

ENTERTAINMENT

We seek to become a place where unique and memorable experiences are lived. To be the best wine tourism alternative, for entertainment for Chileans and foreigners. Each visitor must live the "Colchagua Experience" and thus become the best ambassador of the Colchagüino wine. We have a grid of contents and permanent experiences that ensure an entertaining and unforgettable visit.

People and communities give life to the traditions of the Colchagua Valley. A valley that goes from sea to mountain range, which allows to have a wide variety of vines and wine styles, with the identity of the Chilean countryside, its people and its legacy, its geography and traditions are its hallmark.
