Viña Arboleda is Eduardo Chadwick’s personal venture. He represents the fifth generation of Viña Errázuriz’s founding family and is also the owner of Seña, Chile’s first icon wine, initially born as a joint venture with the legendary Californian vintner Robert Mondavi. Eduardo’s vision for his Arboleda project is to make the most sustainable, pure and modern wines to showcase the world-class quality of the best terroirs in the Aconcagua Valley.
Philosophy of Arboleda
Arboleda, which means a grove of trees, is a tribute to the more than 1,450 hectares (3,583 acres) of native forest that surround its sustainably managed vineyards. Viña Arboleda was founded in 1999 by the Chilean vintner Eduardo Chadwick. The philosophy behind this project is to craft single-vineyard wines that reveal the purest expression of each unique terroir within its vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley. The Arboleda team is fully committed to the quest for excellence and working in harmony with nature, caring for every detail of the process, from the respect for the land where the vines are grown to the final presentation of each wine to our customers and wine-lovers around the globe.
Viña Arboleda was one of the country’s first wineries to be certified under the Chile’s National Sustainability Code that guarantees environmentally friendly production, social responsibility towards the community and economic viability. Arboleda is committed to conserving the biodiversity in the Aconcagua Valley, and as such, more than 1,450 hectares (3,583 acres) of native forest have been kept virgin to protect the natural corridors that constitute a true habitat of flora and fauna. Additionally, water is preserved in a reservoir that extends over 14 hectares (34.5 acres).
