Directions to Veramonte winery
The winemaking experience and passion is a part of the family heritage and the commitment to future generations.
A FAMILY SEAL
Veramonte came to life in the late 1990s in Casablanca, a valley unheard of at that time within the wine industry. Led by grand visionary and pioneer of Chilean wine, Agustín Huneeus was the first to invest in the area and introduce the world to Veramonte and Casablanca. Today, Veramonte is a part of González Byass, a family company founded in 1835 that has maintained their values for five generations.
The organic vineyards are planted in some of Chile’s most renowned winemaking regions. They are dedicated to natural practices that focus on sustaining healthy soils, pure fruit and expressive wines.
Casablanca is situated at the base of the Chilean Coastal Range. Surrounded by 2,500 hectares of native forest, the vineyards are highly influenced by the Pacific Ocean´s cool breezes and morning fog. These conditions moderate temperatures and establish ideal conditions for growing white varieties such Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, well cool-climate reds such Pinot Noir, Merlot and Syrah.
Located 45 kilometers from the Pacific coast, Colchagua has a warm climate that is moderated by the two mountain ranges that extend from north to south along the valley. In Marchigüe, the vineyards enjoy a combination of well-drained soils with clay loam texture and rocky material that produce ideal conditions for growing varieties such as Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon.
All of the estates adhere to organic practices that ensure the best conditions for developing our vines and achieving sustainable vineyards over time. Vigorous, balanced soils grow quality grapes that express their terroir’s maximum potential. The organic vineyard practices include:
1. Making and using quality compost based on the organic remains obtained during harvest.
2. Applying compost throughout the vineyards and boosting soil biodiversity.
3. Cover cropping between vineyard rows in order to improve soil structure, reduce erosion and add nutrients.
4. Conserving biological corridors to preserve biodiversity and ensure a self-sufficient ecosystem.
5. Incorporating sheep, which help to cut grass, aerate the soil and minimize compaction. They also serve as a natural fertilizer.
