The slopes have well-drained limestone soils Furthermore, this strong maritime influence -in addition to the cool climate condition influenced by the Maipo River which is located 1 km from the estate-, allows this terroir to produce high quality red wines, with intense colors, freshness, and a natural acidity.
Wellington Vineyards is owned by Peter Wellington. His father, John, purchased the winery site in 1986. At the time, it consisted of 20 acres of old vines and a few decrepit old fruit and nut trees. Replanting of part of the old vineyard and orchard started in 1988. The winery was completed in time for the 1989 crush. They grow approximately half the grapes used and purchase the remainder, primarily from small, unique vineyards.
