The Vineyard Estates

Vina Morande was established in 1996 and has two estates; Belen Estate in Casablanca Valley with 130 hectares planted in two stages and the estate did not have water which they bought the rights to from a neighbour.

They have medium to heavy clay soils and the varietals are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Semillon and Cabernet Franc.

The history

After analyzing their soils, they discovered that there were 7 different terroirs on the estate each individual and they have a drip feed irrigation system, frost control through the sprinklers and pruning is done by using the Guyot system and they believe that the resources are low and work on sustainable methods with the environment in mind.

Their visitors centre is a uniquely designed building that overlooks the vineyards and has been designed with simplicity and nature in mind.

Romerol Estate is in the Maipo Valley and consists of 130 hectares of vineyards close to the Maipo Alto for the best grape quality and their water supply comes from the canals.

The soils closest to the hills are alluvial/ colluvial with a trace of stones and the lowest part of the vineyard are closest to the river with a high stone content but has good drainage.

The varietals found here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
