History of Casa Lapostolle

Lapostolle Wines was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. The estate consists of three vineyards in three different regions totalling 370 hectares (914 acres). The Apalta vineyard, in the Colchagua Valley, is planted to Carmenère with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah. The oldest blocks date back to the 1920s and include vines imported from France.

In the creation of Lapostolle Wines, the family has maintained the same absolute commitment with the quality that has always characterized them. Its aim is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world class wines using the French experience and the magnificent terroirs of Chile.

Under the dedicated vision of Alexandra and Cyril, Lapostolle Wines has been a pioneer in the wine industry in Chile and today its wines continue to elevate the region through the production of premium wines, with a strong emphasis on sustainability.

Today, Lapostolle Wines is recognized throughout the world for its quality and its extraordinary ability to express the Chilean terroir. The company owns 370 hectares in three different vineyards (Casablanca, Cachapoal and Colchagua) and produces a total of 200,000 cases annually. The wines are distributed in more than 60 countries worldwide.
