Viña Koyle was born from the tradition that the family Undurraga carry in their blood; a family dedicated to winemaking for more than 6 generations, started by Francisco Undurraga Vicuña in 1885.
In 2006, Alfonso Undurraga Mackenna bought the Los Lingues estate and immediately began with his son, Cristobal, to plant the mountains with red grape varieties, starting the story of Koyle Family Vineyards.
Koyle places their greatest effort on the expression and understanding of the vineyard. It is based on 3 pillars: man, place and environment. It is through a Biodynamic approach that they have found the best way to get intimately close to the expression of nature. Through achieving balance, unique wines are obtained that express the harmony found in unifying the cosmic and terrestrial world. The deep respect of the ecosystem, natural cycles and the dedication of human work are used to achieve these wines of excellence.
All Koyle estate-grown grapes are harvested by hand and vinified with a low-intervention philosophy to preserve their natural expression, freshness and finesse. They are “wild fermented” with indigenous yeast, then aged in French oak for 14 months and bottled at the ideal moment.
The wines are characterized by good structure, elegance, freshness and balance. They are concentrated wines with good acidity that show their own notes of the distinct terroir of their origin.
