Viña Leyda

The Leyda Valley lies to the west of Santiago, just 14km from the Pacific, and its proximity to the sea ensures cooling summer breezes which whip across the vineyard from 10am each day, moderating temperatures and cleansing the vineyard. Until recently the landscape was dominated by wheat and barley but in 1997 the Fernandez family, together with Gustavo Llona, recognised the potential of the area for growing grapes and established Viña Leyda.

 
Now with 216 hectares under vine the Pinot Noir,  Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are all thriving, and with Merlot on the way, the future for Viña Leyda is very exciting.
 
“This thrilling, recently planted area has the potential to become one of the New World’s best wine regions. Remember the name, because it could become as famous as Marlborough, Stellenbosch, McLaren Vale and the Napa Valley”. - Tim Atkin MW
