More Info: For successful organic farming, Chile has many great natural advantages. Flanked by the Andes to the east and the Pacific to the west, this long, narrow, remote land enjoys a geography and climate uniquely well suited to organic farming. Founded in 1986 by the local Guilisasti family, Emiliana Vineyards is a privately owned initiative dedicated to producing wines crafted from organic grapes. The progressive conversion of Emiliana’s estate vineyards to organic viticulture began in the mid-1990s. Today, Emiliana’s vineyards total 2,812 acres covering a diversity of regions including Maipo, Colchagua, Casablanca, Bío-Bío, Cachapoal and Limarí. Collectively, Emiliana constitutes the single largest source of estate-grown organic wines in the world.
