The story of Viña Apaltagua began in 1995, when the successful American businessman Edward Tutunjian was on vacation in Chile, and fell in love with both the country and its surprising wines. It was at that moment that he decided to invest in Chile, and acquired his first vineyard, La Pancora, located in the Seventh Region of Chile, in the prestigious Curicó Valley. And later acquiring vineyards in Maule, Colchagua, Maipo and San Antonio in the central regions above Curicó. The vineyard and winery are nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the prestigious Apalta district of the Colchagua Valley. The high altitude, granite with low clay soill, and warm days and cool nights climate, are ideal for growing high quality grapes. It is a gorgeous place that has led to the Apalta Valley being known as the "valley blessed by the hand of God".
