The owners of Vinos Baettig, Francisco Baettig and Carlos de Carlos, aim to create exciting and delicious wines that are connected to the land where they are made, where the cold weather, the rain, the volcanic rock and the character of the people of Traiguén are reflected in fine, pure and austere wines with excellent aging potential. Their great-grandparents migrated from Switzerland to Chile in the late 1800s and settled on the land around Traiguén and Purén, where they worked in an area of volcanoes, lakes, native forests and abundant rainfall. And their families grew, surrounded by cattle, horses and cornfields. Now, more than a century later, they have lived up to their love for this country and their passion for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir by making their own wine.
After studying the soil and climate in Traiguén for several years, they chose a plateau with volcanic soil between the Quino and Traiguén rivers and planted the grape plants in 2013.
