VIK vineyard was born amidst the foothills of the Andes mountains, within the Millahue Valley, named "Lugar de Oro" or "Golden Place" by the native Mapuche people.

The vineyard is located on over 4,300 hectares of magnificent Chilean nature with a unique biodiversity.

 

The VIK winery features a unique and unprecedented design, which is at once state-of-the-art, highly sustainable, technologically creative and a stunning visual experience that promises to redefine the wine experience.

 

In 2004 Alex and Carrie VIK set out with the audacious goal of making one of the world’s best wines.

 

After a 2-year scientific search we found the best terroir in South America in Millahue (Cachapoal Valley) of Chile, a beautiful country dedicated to producing world-class wines.

 

VIK’s terroir offers a majestic and natural landscape composed of 12 valleys, each one with its own micro-climate, distinct exposures, all within a wind-tunnel cooled by Pacific coastal breezes and winds from high up in the Andes mountains that provide VIK with enormous complexity and exceptional variety.

 

Chief Winemaker Cristian Vallejo oversees VIK's viticulture and viniculture, ensuring grapes are harvested by hand and fermentation occurs naturally with no added yeasts.

 

Set within the vines, the VIK wine cellar can be seen from the Vik Chile retreat, where guests can admire its primary architectural element: its uniquely transparent, stretched-fabric roof.

Wine Watch Review: A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenere with a bit of Merlot in the blend this is the main wine and the first vintage was 2010.  a beautiful bouquet of red plum and fresh earth notes of espresso, nice complexity here on the nose, cigar box spice.   Big and chewy with some tannins here at the end with nice freshness and balance but this wine needs time but has everything here in proportion.  Finish 50+     Most Excellent +
