About Viña Undurraga

The winery was established in the heart of the Maipo region in Santa Ana Estate, 34 kilometres from Santiago de Chile, and is one of the oldest wineries in Chile. Viña Undurraga was the first Chilean winery to export wines to the US market in 1903. Their wine won its first international award as early as 1910 and still bagging important awards to date. Rafael Urrejola, the head winemaker of Viña Undurraga is one of Chile’s brightest young winemakers, who is also responsible for the “Terroir Hunter” range. The state-of-the-art winemaking cellars have a whopping capacity of 20 million-litre. The cool underground cellars built during Undurraga’s beginning years in the nineteenth century are used to age their Reserva wines, preserving the wine in ideal conditions and also bonds wines with the old tradition.

About Light White

Light white wines are known for their dry and refreshingly tart flavour. Most light-bodied white wines are meant to be enjoyed young when they have maximum acidity and bold fruit.

These easy-drinking dry white wines are some of the most-sold wines in the world (even if red wines get more attention). Light whites are like the “beer of wine” and, for this reason, they are perfect to drink with most foods. Some of these wines are perfect for savory lovers (like Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner) with green herbal flavors of gooseberry and bell pepper.
