SOFOFA, Adolfo Ibáñez University and Capital magazine awarded the company for promoting various initiatives of territorial valorization with the community.

Ratifying its commitment to sustainability, Viña Santa Rita received an important recognition in the Social category of the 2016 Corporate Sustainability Award, presented by the SOFOFA (Federation of Chilean Industry) together with the Center for Business Sustainability (CSE) of Adolfo Ibáñez University’s Business School and Capital magazine.

Established in 1998, the Award had 23 companies participating in the 2016 edition. It recognizes organizations that have an outstanding performance in Corporate Sustainability and considers three categories of evaluation: Environment, Corporate Governance and Social.

Precisely in this last category was where Santa Rita stood out; being recognized for promoting various initiatives with its surrounding community, focused on territorial valorization and particularly on two programs: the Harvest Project and the Season Concerts Cycle. The first seeks to rescue and valorize the tradition of winemaking, harvesting and wine culture present in the wine-growing territory of the inhabitants of the Maipo Valley. This initiative, which started in 2015, materializes annually with 9-year-old students of Alto Jahuel, Buin, promoting in them a sense of belonging and pride, learning in the classroom about winemaking through history, poetry, art and social sciences, and later on with a visit to the winery, to experience first-hand the elaboration of wine with all the traditions it involves.

The second project, the Seasons Concert Cycle – conducted in partnership with the Claro Vial Foundation and under the Chilean Cultural Donations Law- promotes musical culture in children from local schools, providing an opportunity to experience classical masterpieces performed by international and national artists in a unique setting –the Santa Rita Chapel. Since 2012, four concerts are performed each year, and to date, more than 5.000 students have attended.
