Terrunyo, an Expression of Terroir

Terrunyo embodies the spirit of terroir expression with a range of estate-grown, limited-production wines from Chile’s most celebrated wine regions. Each specific vineyard block is selected for its ability to convey the typicity of the grape variety and the unique combination of soil, climate, sun exposure and elevation that defines its terroir. The fruit is harvested by hand and carefully crafted into expressive, complex wines that pay homage to their origins.

At the moment of creating a wine, I aim to express all of its special characteristics, the essence of the grape variety together with the character of the soil where it was grown.

Across Chile

The wines of Terrunyo reflect their estate-grown origins in three lauded regions of Chile. In Maipo Valley, Pirque Vineyard basks in abundant sunlight at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Cool nights temper the climate, and alluvial rocky soils give rise to Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with rich complexity. In Cachapoal Valley, Peumo Vineyard is heavily influenced by the Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel. A vast expanse between day and night temperatures, along with alluvial, clay-loam soils, combine to develop dark fruit notes and firm tannins in the site’s Carmenere grapes. In the coolest region of Casablanca Valley, Los Boldos Vineyard, nestled just 11 miles from the Pacific Ocean, sees morning clouds and cold, windy afternoons—ideal conditions for growing bright Sauvignon Blanc fruit with fresh minerality.
