Product Overview

Santa Rita was founded in 1880, a boom time for Chile while the rest of the world suffered the scourge of phylloxera. Chile was, and remains, a viticultural paradise, with Andean snowmelt for irrigation, low summer rainfall promoting healthy grapes, and the continued absence of phylloxera in the soil obviating the cost of grafted vines. Santa Rita was a driving force from the very start; the founder, Domingo Fernández, introduced not just French equipment and expertise but also electricity to the Alto Jahuel region, where the winery is still based.
