About Viu Manent
Viu Manent is a Chilean winery owned by the Viu family. Viu Manent is the current Wines of Chile Winery of the Year, while in 2017 Decanter called them Chile’s Masters of Malbec with over 50 different clones. Viu Manent was founded in 1935 when the Catalonian immigrant Miguel Viu-García and his two sons Agustín and Miguel Viu-Manent founded Bodegas Viu in Santiago de Chile. They bottled and sold wine on the local market under the “Vinos Viu” brand.
In 1966 Miguel Viu Manent fulfilled his long-time dream of making his own wines when he acquired the Hacienda San Carlos de Cunaco in Colchagua. This traditional estate included 150 hectares of vineyards planted to noble, pre-phylloxera vines, as well as a winery and manor house. It was no coincidence that he chose this particular property; it had long supplied the much of the wine he sold as Vinos Viu.
The Viu Manent Philosophy
What exactly is one’s own? … ”That which identifies us and by which we can recognize ourselves.”
“ We love our property, our family and our traditions. We love our work, which we see as the motor that can propel us toward fulfilling our dreams. We believe in transcendence, in putting our heart into things and that the only way to do something is to do it to the best of our abilities. We have a strong bond with wine; we love its living essence and its sensitivity. We believe that Chile is a privileged territory for the production of wines and that Colchagua is a magical valley where the soil, climate and grapes seem to be blessed.”
– We believe in attention to detail and in respecting the environment.
– We believe that history and tradition provide us with knowledge and experience, while innovation and modernity help us to advance toward our goal.
– We believe in teamwork and in the talented, professional and committed people who work with us.
– We are committed to transmitting this philosophy into our daily mission.
We look forward to welcoming you to this great “Viu Manent – Masters of Colchagua”, tasting and sharing some of Chile’s great wines with you.
