Espiritu de Chile
A line of wines that represents Chile’s best attributes: The bright sunshine reflecting on the Andes and pure air, the perfect combination for the production of the best grapes. With a centuries-old tradition, Chile's vineyards combine careful selection of grapes and varieties, and thorough vinification processes. Top-level winemaking techniques capture the identity of Chilean wines, renowned around the world for their firm structure and high aromatic expression. Located on the southern end of the Americas, Chilean vineyards grow in a Mediterranean climate and healthy, powerful soils. In this land of contrasts, geography is delineated by natural borders that favor the production of diverse, sustainable, premium quality wines. The rivers that flow down from the Andes irrigate the land that offers the ideal conditions for the growing of grape varieties most sought for worldwide.
Espíritu de Chile is owned by ACW, one of the most prestigious family-run wine operations in Chile. Since it was established in 1951, ACW has grown into a major producer and marketer of sustainable wines that is constantly innovating, adding new and attractive labels to its portfolio, and working to further the family’s legacy. At present, ACW owns four estates in the Central valley with a total area of 1,150 hectares, 350 of which are planted. With huge potential to grow, the winery currently exports to more than 40 countries around the world. Originally conceived by ACW’s founder, Vicente Aresti, and his German partner, Mr. Racke, with the dream of making Chile’s winegrowing tradition known worldwide, Espíritu de Chile was launched in 2005. In 2011, ACW became the sole owner of the brand.
The winery is situated in Molina, in the Curicó valley. New vineyards near the Claro river – Micaela, Peñaflor, and La Reserva– have been added to Bellavista, the original estate. Espíritu de Chile invites you to discover Chile’s main wine valleys.
