The Echeverría family came to Chile in the 1750s, from a little town called Amezqueta in the Basque region of Spain.  They established agricultural crops and planted vines.  Today the company is a global enterprise.  Echeverria has always been at the forefront of the modern Chilean wine industry while honouring tradition and respecting the environment.  This tradition is expressed through their wines which are classic and elegant in style and showcase intense fruit aromas and flavours which are the hallmarks of Chilean wine thanks to the country’s privileged terroir and climatic conditions. Echeverria has an extensive portfolio of over 30 wines from over 10 different grape varieties and several wine growing regions.

Roberto Echeverría Jr has been the Chief Winemaker at Viña Echeverría since 2001. Inspired by his French heritage, Roberto’s signature style produces wines with a combination of Old World elegance and New World energy. More European viticultural techniques include timely harvesting to avoid over ripeness and therefore good balance and control of alcohol levels. Focus is on French varietals, barrels and yeasts, as well as longer fermentation and aging in barrels and diverse blending. 

Tasting Notes

Smooth and tasty, strawberries and blueberry confiture blend nicely, leaving a round and pleasant finish.  This light easy-drinking Merlot pairs well with a range of Italian dishes, especially tomato-based ones, as well as deeply savory foods such as roast chicken, mushrooms and parmesan. Caramelized roasted vegetables with a touch of sweetness, such as roast squash, red peppers and beets, and fried or grilled mushrooms.


Made from Merlot grapes from Chile’s Central Valley (Entre Cordillera) from a selection of different valleys in the Central region, including Curico, Maule and Colchagua.  The vines ungrafted selected clones on pre-phylloxera French rootstock, hand-picked in 18 kg. boxes and carried to the winery immediately after.  Cold maceration for 12 hours to enhance fruit flavors. Fermented to dryness in stainless steel tanks for 10 days at 25-27ºC controlled temperature.  100% malolactic fermentation. Stored in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until bottling.
