Viña Errázuriz was founded by Don Maximiano Errázuriz in 1870, when he planted the first French grape varieties in the Aconcagua Valley in Chile.
Today Eduardo Chadwick, the fifth generation of the family, is the winery’s president. Errázuriz now owns vineyards in the Casablanca and Curicó Valleys, as well as Aconcagua; and produces a varied range of over 35 wines.
