Resource Overview

Few will realise that Undurraga actually began as far back as 1879 when Francisca Undurraga Vicuña began bringing European grape cuttings back to his native Chile. He brought pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon from France and gewürztraminer and riesling from Germany, transporting the cuttings in lead capsules to stop them wilting in the extreme heat.
Undurraga's vineyard area now stands at 1,800ha and like many Chilean producers, they attempt to practise environmentally friendly viticulture, and interfere with nature as little as possible.
We're joined by chief winemaker and one of Chile's brightest young stars, Rafael Urrejola, for a presentation on what it's like producing wine for one of the most esteemed wineries in Chile, the challenges and the joys.
