The Morandé story began 20 years ago in 1996 with a plan to make great and innovative wines of the highest quality with grapes from vineyards in Chile’s most interesting wine valleys. In 2000 Empresas Juan Yarur, one of Chile’s most important and respected business groups, took control of the winery and formed Grupo Belén, which includes the Morandé, Vistamar, Mancura, and Fray Leon wineries. We were pioneers in creating and planting vineyards in Casablanca.
Today the valley enjoys great international prestige and has opened the door to other coastal vineyards in Chile. We were also the first to believe in the great potential of the Maule Valley and the old, traditional varieties seldom seen today, such as Carignan and País.
