Leyda Valley

Located in Region V to the southwest of Santiago in the Cordillera de la Costa, 8km from the Pacific Ocean. It has a warm climate, although its proximity to the sea and the lack of mountains in the area allow cool marine breezes to enter that markedly chill the air.

Leyda Valley

The marine influence, morning mists and fine clayish sandy soil with good drainage and adequate permeability mean the vines produce low yields and high varietal concentration. This makes the Leyda valley an ideal place for the production of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
