Founded in 1885, the Undurragas established the Koyle Family Vineyard in 2006 after purchasing a Los Lingues property in Alto Colchagua at the foot of the Andes Mountains.
An agricultural engineer and sixth-generation winemaker, Cristobal Undurraga Marimon (known as 'Toti') returned from seven years of viticulture and enology experience in Napa Valley, Australia, the famed 'Chateau Margaux' in Bordeaux and Mendoza-Argentina to oversee production. Motivated by a terroir-driven philosophy and respect for the ecosystem, their transition to biodynamic farming began in 2008 and culminated with a certification in 2012 that Cristobal credits as a collective effort amongst close advisors and his broader family team.
True to the name Koyle (derived from a purple flower growing wild in the vineyard), 2018's 'Costa La Flor' Sauvignon Blanc is a beautiful expression of freshness and texture from fermentation in stainless steel followed by three months of aging on the lees.

"Viña Koyle was born from a tradition that runs in our blood: we are a family dedicated to wine for more than six generations, since Don Francisco Undurraga Vicuña began in 1885. We are dedicated to making wines with identity, from vineyards planted on the rocky slopes of Los Lingues, in Alto Colchagua, at the foot of the Andes mountain range.
Our philosophy is based on respecting origin, and we are guided by biodynamic practices. In our winery we make wines that emphasise the excellence of our terroir, using our family’s experience and innovative winemaking techniques as tools to help us."
