Viñedos Puertas LTDA is a family-owned winery that has been producing high-quality wines since its establishment in 1950. Founded by José Puertas Pons, the vineyard started with 80 hectares of vineyards irrigated by waters from the Andes Mountains. The winery, located in Convento Viejo, Curicó Valley, had a capacity for one million liters, and was named “The Miracle”. Initially, the company sold grapes, bulk wines and offered maquila services, providing benefits to important wine companies in Chile and creating employment and development in the adjacent areas.
With time, Viñedos Puertas became one of the most successful and endorsed wine producers in the central area, giving prestige to the Curicó Valley for its fertile lands and human quality of its people. The company’s main objective has been to permanently seek the final quality of its wines, starting from the choice of terroir for its plantations, the selection of strains, clones, and rootstocks according to the edaphoclimatic conditions, permanent agronomic care throughout the vegetative development of the vine, and defining the harvest at the right time.
Viñedos Puertas’ modern winery has the most up-to-date technology worldwide and a qualified and first-rate human team, ensuring that all the processes of the grapes are carried out perfectly. The company works in a sustainable and ethical way both with its collaborators and clients, as well as with the environment. Viñedos Puertas currently cultivates its vineyards in nine sub-valleys, providing different types of soils, varied microclimates, and different luminosities. Each vine develops according to its needs, achieving excellent harvests and processing its grapes with the best technology.
