Viña La Rosa began in 1824 when Francisco Ossa y Mercado, a leading mining entrepreneur in northern Chile bought an estate in central Chile. His fondness for agriculture led him to choose a property that was eventually was left to his oldest son, Gregorio.
The beauty of the Cachapoal Valley and the attractive qualities of the Peumo district appealed to Don Francisco, and one beautiful estate in particular caught his attention. It had been part of the first land grant or encomienda that Pedro de Valdivia gave to the love of his life, Inés de Suarez in this distant New World. The property was later sold to Manuel Blanco Encalada, a famous mariner and Chile’s first president.
The purchase included a vineyard planted with pre-phylloxera vines imported from France, a winery, barrels for storing the wine, and the family residence.
Today, the sixth generation of the family, now headed by Ismael Ossa, continues the legacy of its founders and has established Viña La Rosa as a producer of world-class fine wines. To achieve that goal the winery has more than 600 hectares of vineyards planted in the Peumo zone of the Cachapoal Valley, managed using sustainable practices in harmony with nature and with absolute respect for the people who care for it until it is bottled on site.
