Viña Ventisquero was created as a passion of Gonzalo Vial, a successful and respected entrepreneur from Chile.
10 years ago they decided to enthusiastically dedicate their energies into premium wine production, giving birth to their first plantations of grapes and the building of a modern winery.
Ventisquero has already gained international recognition as a top Premium wine producer from Chile and has become one of the top 10 most successful exporters of bottled wine from Chile.
Ventisquero has 1,600 hectares planted in 7 different vineyards, located in the most prestigious terroirs of Chile like Casablanca, coastal Maipo and in the unique Apalta region of Colchagua. The winery has developed innovative super-premium wine products through their collaboration with the Australian winemaker John Duval famous for Penfolds Grange.
From its inception, Ventisquero was designed to produce wines in the most environmentally-friendly manner, and it was the first Chilean winery to offset its carbon dioxide production starting back in August 2007. In addition, the winery has recently achieved a reduction of the weight of its bottles by 11%. Ventisquero is one of the pioneers in Chile for sustainable production in the wine industry and strives to continue to provide leadership in this realm.
