Tinajas del Maule Winery was founded in 1997, when the Mena Undurraga family acquired old, established vineyards in the town of Villa Alegre in the Maule Valley. They decided to upgrade the existing vineyards, which dated back to 1918, to take advantage of the region’s great potential.
All this took place while maintaining the adobe buildings and oak casks, integrating the benefits of stainless steel and state-of-the-art equipment for vinification and bottling. Today the winery has a 3 million liter (approx. 800,000 gal.) capacity and 300 hectares (741 acres) planted with six types of premium varietal grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Carménère, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
