Our modern building is situated in the 7th Region of Maule, the winemaking heart of Chile. Covering over 1,500 m2, our installations include the Agriculture and Oenology Laboratory, a Molecular Biology Laboratory, the Experimental Cellar and the Center of Extension, which together with the Rauquén Greenhouse and the Lourdes Cellar, are located within the vineyard of the same name which, with its close to 1,090 hectares, is the largest continuous vineyard in Chile.
Since 2001 Viña Concha y Toro entered into a long-term agreement with Mercier-Groupe, the largest producer of vines in France. The “Technical Assistance and Supply of Goods Agreement” provides wide-ranging technical support with regard to the production of grafted plants. It also enables access to top quality clones, which today form the basis for Viña Concha y Toro’s production of plants.
