Alyan Family Wines

Maipo Valley, Santiago, Chile

In the heart of Chile’s Maipo Valley, a winemaking tale of passion, tradition, and unwavering dedication unfolds. Alyan Family Wines, founded in 2001 by Alicia Balmaceda and Andrés Perez, stands as a testament to their shared love for the craft and their deep-rooted connection to the land.

The origins of Alyan Family Wines can be traced back to the rich winemaking heritage of its founders. Andrés is the grandson of Francisco Pérez, a revered grape grower in the Maule Valley, while Alicia is the granddaughter of Pedro Undurraga, the visionary behind one of Chile’s oldest and most esteemed wineries, The Undurraga Wine Company. With such esteemed lineage, it was almost destiny that their lives would be intertwined with the art of winemaking.

From the early days of their marriage, Alicia and Andrés were determined to dedicate themselves to their shared passion: wine. They began their journey by contributing to the growth of Santa Carolina winery, immersing themselves in the intricacies of the winemaking process. However, they yearned for more, an opportunity to create something truly their own, a testament to their unique vision.

With the support of their friends, Alicia and Andrés took a leap of faith and founded Viña Santa Alicia, a winery that would honor Alicia’s family legacy. For 17 successful years, Viña Santa Alicia thrived, exporting millions of bottles of premium wines annually. However, the time had come for the couple to embark on their next great adventure: the establishment of their very own winery, Alyan Family Wines.

Nestled in Pirque, a picturesque town at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, Alyan Family Wines finds its home in the Maipo Valley. This enchanting region, known for its fertile soils and optimal climate, has a storied history in winemaking. It was here that the Spanish conquerors planted the first vineyard in Chile, recognizing the immense potential that lay within the terroir.

The winery itself is a true testament to the community that surrounds it. Constructed with locally sourced stones, it symbolizes the collective efforts and unwavering spirit of the people who brought Alyan Family Wines to life. Each stone laid is a tribute to the deep-rooted connection between the land, the people, and the wines they produce. Beyond the physical structure, Alyan Family Wines carries a profound mission. Alicia and Andrés are committed to providing their clients around the world with exceptional wines that reflect the essence of the Maipo Valley. They ensure a transparent and high-quality product, carefully crafted with a responsible use of resources. Their dedication to sustainability and environmental stewardship permeates every aspect of their winemaking process.
