History of Von Siebenthal
The philosophy behind Viña von Siebenthal is similar to that of the Bordeaux chateaux; vineyards, cellar and house blend together harmoniously to facilitate the creation of an exceptional wine.
Viña von Siebenthal’s four main vineyards are in the historical wine-growing area of Panquehue, in the Aconcagua Valley. This is a very small sub-apellation of the Aconcagua Valley in Chile and one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas in Chile for the production of red and white Bordeaux varietes. This is a semi desert area half way between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. This ideal climate ensures excellent phyto-sanitary conditions.
For the Merlot and the Cabernet Franc it is the cool clay-limestone soil of the plains, while the warm sandy, stony soil of the hills is ideally suited for the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Syrah, the Carmenère and the Petit Verdot.
