Hacienda Araucano

Chile is a paradise for vines, thanks to its stable, cool climate and a lack of disease. Although François and his brother Jacques had been making Chilean wine since 1992, it was not until 2000 that they found the perfect spot in the Colchagua Valley. They bought 200 hectares (combining seven different estates into a single family) in an area that had never previously been used for winegrowing. Today, the estate has 28 hectares of vines, and Lolol has become a sought-after location for wine production. Located in a magnificent spot on the Ruta del Vino, we developed wine tourism on the estate to cater to the growing numbers of wine enthusiasts in Colchagua Valley.
