The Cachapoal Valley is located in central Chile, between the foothills of the Andes Mountains and the Coastal Range. Its cold, rainy winters and warm, dry summers create an exceptional microclimate for the development of vineyards and fruit orchards, especially on the southern slope where Viña La Rosa is located, as the sun's rays fall at a sharp angle, creating a cool environment that prevents excess radiation and evaporation.
This valley is blessed by the Cachapoal River, which originates in the high Andes Mountains. It travels 250 kilometers, from an altitude of 600 meters, reaching with its generous flow the mountainous and fertile landscape of our region.
Our vineyard is located in the commune of Peumo, in the heart of the Cachapoal Valley, with an area of 153.12 km² and a population of 14,313 inhabitants. Its climate and soil conditions are optimal for agriculture and the perfect terroir for vineyards and fruit orchards. The Peumo appellation is recognized worldwide for its favorable conditions for wine growing and cultivating classic grape varieties, with Carmenère being especially favored.
Everything that we know as the territory of Chile, was under water in ancient geological periods. In our fields these conditions are reflected in submarine volcanism, so its origin is volcanic. It was in the Cretaceous period that the Cordillera de la Costa began to emerge, thus remaining on the sea surface. This uplift of the Cordillera de la Costa (which precedes the Cordillera de los Andes) occurs in conjunction with the uplift of the Pluto de Alhué. A Pluto is a magma rise of many dimensions, originating conditions of great mineralogy.
Our region is a mining sector for gold, copper and other minerals, so our vineyards have an overwhelming geological diversity, which translates into intrusive, volcano-sedimentary, alluvial and colluvial soils, which gives us a great possibility of selecting terroirs.
