- The purest expression of the Aconcagua Valley -

Philosophy

Arboleda, which means a grove of trees, is a tribute to the more than 1,450 hectares (3,583 acres) of native forest that surround its sustainably managed vineyards.

Viña Arboleda was founded in 1999 by the Chilean vintner Eduardo Chadwick. The philosophy behind this project is to craft single-vineyard wines that reveal the purest expression of each unique terroir within its vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley.

The Founder

Viña Arboleda is Eduardo Chadwick’s personal venture. He represents the fifth generation of Viña Errázuriz’s founding family and is also the owner of Seña, Chile’s first icon wine, initially born as a joint venture with the legendary Californian vintner Robert Mondavi. Eduardo’s vision for his Arboleda project is to make the most sustainable, pure and modern wines to showcase the world-class quality of the best terroirs in the Aconcagua Valley.

The Team

The Arboleda team is fully committed to the quest for excellence and working in harmony with nature, caring for every detail of the process, from the respect for the land where the vines are grown to the final presentation of each wine to our customers and wine-lovers around the globe.

I see huge potential and diversity in the terroir of the Arboleda vineyards throughout the valley; there is character and identity. This definitely excites and motivates me.

Emily Faulconer

- Winemaker -

With a degree in Agronomy and Oenology from the P. Universidad Católica de Chile, Emily began her career working vintages in Chile and later in the Napa Valley, Hawkes Bay and Saint-Émilion. All this practice gave her great experience in vineyard management under very different conditions. Her philosophy in making wine is to respect the characteristics of each terroir and avoid excessive intervention.

I think Arboleda not only represents an ideal coincidence between climate, soil, varieties and people, but also a great opportunity to communicate Aconcagua Costa’s amazing characteristics to the world through its wines.
