Loma Larga Vineyards & Winery got its start when Don Manuel Joaquín Díaz Escudero Alvarez de Toledo — grandfather of the current owners — brought back strains of wine grapes from France and planted them at a wine estate in the middle of Santiago. Years later in 1999, the Díaz family planted the first vines on their property in Casablanca Valley.
Today, Loma Larga is famous for producing some of the best cool climate reds in Chile. It’s one of the few area wineries making more red than white and the first to grow Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Malbec grapes in Casablanca Valley.
Throughout the week, Loma Larga Vineyards & Winery opens to visitors who can tour the vineyards on horseback, learn about the history and production with a tour of the production facilities or participate in sommelier-led tastings. Visitors can pick up bottles of their favorites at the winery shop.
Loma Larga Vineyards & Winery is open seven days a week from 9:30am to 6pm.
