Project Description

Viña Siegel

A family-owned and run winery nestled in the foothills of the Andes

The Viña Siegel estate covers 700 hectares of land with 470 hectares of vineyards planted across seven strategic zones, stretching from the foot of the Andes Mountains in Los Lingues to the most coastal zones such as Paralillo as well as the Leyda Valley. Despite being a third-generation, family owned and operated wine business, Viña Siegel has only started to rise to prominence in the last two or three years.

Currently producing the wines at several different price points, the wines produced in Los Lingues, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the Alto-Colchagua zone, are the jewel in Viña Siegel’s crown. The Los Lingues Estate itself, 360 metres above sea level, provides optimal conditions for producing concentrated, elegant wines that offer Siegel a true point of difference. It is from these hill blocks that the Special Reserve, Single Vineyard and Unique Selection wines are made. It is also here that Viña Siegel experiments with single block, single vineyard expressions of Cinsault, Sémillon, Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, hoping to create complimentary wines which can sit alongside the existing single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère wines.

The Los Lingues “hill” permits Alberto Siegel, winemaker and commercial director, to take advantage of differing levels of exposure and altitude, giving rise to more structured, elegant wines. In his own words, “we are very fortunate to own the Los Lingues estate, and one of the highest vineyards in Colchagua. Given our unique geographical position and altitude, we constantly seek to increase the level of quality and elegance in our wines, whilst making wines that are priced for every day consumption.”
