CHILE’S ONLY BLEND SPECIALISTS

Estampa is an avant-garde winery producing wines exclusively from its 400 hectares of vineyards in the Colchagua Valley, which starts at the base of the Andes Mountains and spread westwards to the Pacific Ocean. The vineyards are located in 3 different climatic areas.

Since 2011, the Estampa winery boasts a 700 square metre barrel room equipped with the latest technology, ensuring optimum temperature and humidity. The barrel capacity is 130,000 litres and uses 80% French and 20% American oak barrels. The winery’s mission is to produce premium wines through the art of assemblage (blending) to ensure a unique and authentic expression in every wine. As a result they are recognised globally as Chile’s only assemblage specialists.

Attilio Pagli, a reputable Italian winemaker from Tuscany, is Estampa's winemaking consultant, and is a producer of a top class Brunello di Montalcino. Attilio plays a crucial role in Estampa, where he works exclusively in Chile and is convinced that the Colchagua Valley is a privileged area for the production of ultra premium wines.

Today Attilio sees huge potential for the development of the Carmenere grape and has chosen to work in the Colchagua Valley where he believes the conditions are at their best for this grape variety. Marcela Chandia is the head winemaker and boasts a fantastic career, already having worked as a winemaker in the Sonoma Valley in California, South Africa, New Zealand, Portugal and France. Since her first full vintage (2012), her wines have really impressed with their freshness and balance whilst also successfully remaining true to the specific terroir of each wine and the Estampa philosophy.

The Estampa Estate wines are versatile and burst with fresh fruit flavours. The Reserva range is ideal for old and new world wine lovers alike, displaying the perfect balance between fruitiness and complex flavours from barrel ageing. Estampa wines are very elegant and are great for food pairing.
