After more than 30 years, Don Melchor has reached a solid position that enables it to face new challenges, highlighting its maturity and ability to express its own identity through Viña Don Melchor.

This identity is built upon a base of three fundamental pillars—its impeccable heritage and history, the peerless conditions of its terroir, and the deep understanding and expertise in the making of the Don Melchor wine.
The vineyard today consists of 127 hectares, carefully divided into seven parcels, of which roughly 90 per cent hold Cabernet Sauvignon vines, with 7.1 per cent Cabernet Franc, 1.9 per cent Merlot and the final one 1 per cent growing Petit Verdot grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines average more than 30 years of age and correspond to a selection originally brought over from Bordeaux at the end of the 19th Century
The beauty of the composition in Don Melchor is the intermingling of the flavors, aromas, and emotions produced by the different parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon.

It is bringing together, in a balanced way, the expression of each of the parcels. It is finding the balance that enables the expression of a place, a soil, the Andes Mountains in a single wine.
Winemaker Enrique Tirado is one of the most influential figures in the national wine industry.

For more than 20 years he has been in charge of Don Melchor, Chile’s first icon wine and a true benchmark of the variety at the global level.
