Echeverria Moscato Frizzante
Story

“This uplifting and lightly sparkling wine is made from 100% Moscato grapes, renowned for their highly aromatic qualities. A perfumed nose of nectarines and orange blossom leads to a soft, fruity explosion in the mouth. Highly versatile, this refreshing wine is a delightful aperitif but also an excellent accompaniment to slightly sweet or spicy dishes. Also pairs deliciously with fruit-based deserts.” Roberto Echeverría Jnr, Chief Winemaker

Active in Chilean agriculture, grape growing and winemaking since 1740, the Echeverria family established their current vineyards and winery in 1923 in the outskirts of Molina, a town in the Curicó Valley. Here, they grow grapes from French pre-phylloxera rootstocks, on their 80 ha of vineyards.

Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London.

Eventually, the family started purchasing grapes, to complement and build complexity to their wines. "We realized that to succeed and be different, we needed to be open," says Roberto Echeverria, the Technical Director Chief Winemaker, whose first solo vintage appeared on the market in 2001. With sustainable practices in the vineyard, Echeverria produces a wine for most every palate, while embracing a philosophy that's based on consistency.
