Espino is a result of a collaboration between Victor Pino, an expert of Chilean terroir and William Fevre, a French seasoned winemaker. William Fevre scouted the perfect hillside to plant his vines – he knocked on the door of Victor Pino, who lived on these hills. They formed a partnership to develop the vineyards and a small winery, relying upon the keen sense of William and the terroir expertise of Victor.
Today, the Pino Family owns and operates the winery, with over 158-planted acres spread throughout four farms high in the Maipo Valley in the foothills of the Andes. This mountain-grown fruit is made naturally and defined on the vine by the vintage year. All their spectacular wines are handcrafted with care to produce their refined yet expressive wines, limited in quantity.
The name Espino has a dual meaning; the road leading up to the winery are lined with hawthorn trees – Espinos, in Spanish. Victor's last name IS Pino - ES PINO.
