Maturana Winery

San Fernando, Chile

In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Chile in 2010, José Ignacio Maturana, along with his brother Sebastian and their family, made a momentous decision. They embarked on a passionate journey to produce wines of unparalleled quality, ones that would not only embody their way of life but also preserve the pristine conditions from which their grapes originate.

Thus, Maturana Winery was born—a boutique winery that has quickly garnered acclaim and accolades for its commitment to innovation, differentiation, quality, passion, heritage strain preservation, and fair trade practices.

Maturana Winery has emerged as one of the most esteemed boutique wineries in Chile, receiving prestigious honors such as the “Best Wine Project of the Year” and “Most Innovative Winery of the Year 2017” from the circle of gastronomic chroniclers and wine journalists in Chile.

Central to Maturana Winery’s vision is the pursuit of grapes from terroirs that possess unique natural conditions, resulting in wines with a distinct identity and exceptional quality. They prioritize vineyards with a rich heritage and a strong focus on family farming, emphasizing the importance of preserving the cultural legacy embedded within these ancestral vines. Many of these vineyards date back to approximately 1910, featuring heritage strains such as El Pais, Torontel, Semillon, San Francisco, and more.

These historical vineyards, once threatened by intensive crops like pine and eucalyptus, now stand resilient, thanks to Maturana Winery’s commitment to their preservation. By adopting responsible vineyard management practices and offering fair trade prices per kilogram of grapes—five times higher than market prices—the winery empowers small producers and ensures the continuation of Chile’s vinicultural heritage.

This horizontal growth model unites heritage vine growers, grape processors, and global wine distribution, creating a sustainable ecosystem that safeguards the future of these unique wines.

Nestled approximately 150 kilometers south of the Metropolitan Region, the Colchagua Valley epitomizes the productivity and excellence of Chile’s wine industry. Renowned for its exceptional red wines and cool-climate coastal whites, the valley has garnered international acclaim. In 2005, it was honored as the “Wine Region of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast magazine, celebrating its outstanding land quality and perfect microclimate for grape cultivation. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere—an ancient European variety uniquely found in Chile—and Syrah are among the remarkable red varieties that thrive in this vinous paradise.

Maturana Winery, rooted in the enchanting Colchagua Valley, has become a beacon of sustainable winemaking, celebrating heritage, and championing fair trade practices. With each bottle, they invite wine enthusiasts around the world to savor the exceptional flavors and stories that unfold from their carefully nurtured vineyards. At Maturana Winery, visitors are warmly welcomed to enjoy guided tours. To make a reservation, visit their website for contact information. Maturana Winery stands as a testament to the unwavering commitment to quality and the profound respect for both tradition and the environment.
