In 1979, Miguel Torres acquired a small winery in Curicó, in the Chilean central valley, and became the first foreign company to back Chilean vineyard production located in a unique magical landscape, at the feet of the Andes volcanoes. Today, after almost thirty years, the estate has grown from 100 ha to over 400ha – clearly showing the success and demand for the wines.
The winery in Curicó is completely equipped with the most modern winemaking facilities, giving the winemaker great control. Torres was the first winery in Chile to use temperature controlled Steel tanks, and import top quality French oak barrels.
The name Santa Digna was given to the crosses marking the district boundaries of a land. These crosses served to delimit territories and symbolised good fortune and protection for those who were leaving for other climes.
These wines focus on delivering great quality and classic varietal characters.
