Don Maximiano

Aconcagua Valley

Introduced with the 1989 vintage, Don Maximiano was among the first of the new generation of “Super-Chileans”. The Don Maximiano Estate is located in the Aconcagua Valley, a semi-desert region where the hot summer days are cooled by afternoon breezes. The vineyard has sandy soils on a northeast-facing 5º slope, which rises gently to 20º in the upper blocks. One sector of the vineyard is planted on a 45º slope – the steepest plantings in Chile. The high diurnal temperature difference of the Don Maximiano Estate slows ripening and helps create intensity of flavors and concentration.
