At VIK, science, technology and knowledge are our foundation, passion is our engine, and wine is our artistic expression. All of our synergies focus on the whole, with a special sensitivity to the environment to the environment that creates a great wine, the best wine our magnificent terroir can provide.
Our vineyard, or "Place of Gold", is located in the interior of the valley among innumerable gorges, offering us a variety of unequaled terroir and small microclimates – each with distinct sun exposure and cooled by coastal breezes – giving us the complexity we seek for our holistic wines....the perfect combination of man's tenacity and nature's gifts, expressed as one.
Our holistic wine is the result of the magnificent dynamic terroir together with viticultural and vinicultural best practices, excellence in environmental stewardship, development of human and social capital as well as architecture and the arts.
In 2004, Alexander Vik, a Norwegian entrepreneur and soil expert, proposed creating a world-class vineyard to produce a unique wine. He undertook meticulous soil studies to find the best terroir, covering all of South America.
Our Vineyard, or "Place of Gold", was chosen by Alexander Vik as the ideal terroir with optimal climatic conditions. Our 10,688 acres is located in the Millahue Valley, or "Place of Gold", as named by the indigenous people.
