Santa Rita

Santa Rita
The history of wine in Chile began around 1550 somewhat after its discovery and conquest. Writers of the period spoke of the first planting of vines for the wine production immediately after Pedro de Valdivia took possession of the Chilean territory in the name of the King of Spain. as a result, Chile was more than a century ahead of South Africa in establishing its first vineyards, and became the first wine producer in the new world, some 200 years before California. Although the growth of wine-making in Chile during the colonial period was as slow as the evolution of society it self, towards the end of the 18th century the first shipments of wine to other American countries were made from the port of Valparaiso. Around that time, land that would later belong to Viña Santa Rita began to be used for grape growing. These land were also the stage for significant historic events associated with the independence of Chile. National heroes such as general Bernardo O'Higgins one of the founding fathers of the Chilean Nation, found safe harbor there after battling the forces of the Spanish crown. In the middle of the 19th century, once the republic had been established, a decisive change in the Chilean wine producing sector came about. Until that time, colonial methods of land use had been employed. Some visionaries, among them Don Domingo Fernández, a distinguished politician, founded Viña Santa Rita in 1880 and promoted the introduction of the finest French vine stocks. Following the advice of expert French penologists, he began producing wines with techniques and with results far superior to those traditionally achieved. Visit the Santa Rita website.
