Michel Laroche Chili
In 2001, the ambitious minds of Michel Laroche and his collaborators carried them beyond the French borders to take up the challenge of introducing the "French Touch" to the new world. Fascinated by the potential of the unique climat conditions, the broad variety of grapes and the ancestral culture of the wine, he decided to create a vineyard in Chile, Viña Punto Alto.
In 2005 Michel Laroche bought 53 hectares of slopes ideally situated in the valley of Casablanca, on the West of Santiago, towards Valparaiso, at the foot of the mountain El Mahuco which separates the valleys of Casablanca and Maïpo. In 2006 he acquired a 23 hectares Domain planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot noir . The Domain was already endowed with a perfectly functional cellar situated immediately next to the motorway which links Santiago to Valparaiso.
