Viña Echeverría is a family-owned and operated winery in the Curicó Valley with a long history. The Echeverría family moved to Chile in the 1750s and wine production started in the 1950s under Roberto Echeverría's leadership. Roberto earned undergraduate degrees both in Winemaking and Economics, then his PhD from Cornell before working 8 years in the World Bank. In 1979, he returned to Chile to concentrate on his family's tradition of winemaking. After 15 years of sacrifice and determination, Roberto managed to reform the entire estate into a modern export-oriented operation.
This wine is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Central Valley. Aromas of green apples, pineapples and peaches combine nicely with notes of fresh herbs and lemon blossoms. The palate is fresh and tasty, with a round and fruity finish. This fresh and fruity wine makes the perfect accompaniment to shellfish or light fish dishes. Because of its herby characteristics, it can match well with light dishes with green herbs, also salads or softer more sour cheeses such as goat’s cheese.
