Viña Leyda

Website : www.leyda.cl

Few wineries encapsulate the development of cool-climate winemaking in Chile as well as pioneering Viña Leyda. The first producer to explore this coastal area, a rising star of New World winemaking, it took its name from the local railway station and later lent it to the entire DO of Leyda Valley.
If Casablanca Valley represents Chile’s first tentative steps into cool-climate production, Leyda is a series of determined, confident strides: just 14km from the Pacific, the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah planted here express a crispness, minerality and fine-boned structure not found elsewhere in Chile’s viticultural paradise.
Viña Leyda now has more than 200 hectares under vine, but the approach remains one of micro-management, with detailed mapping of each vineyard and individual lot, and constant experimentation with clonal selection and viticultural techniques.
The fruits of those labours are reflected not just in the impeccable Reserva range, but in the exciting series of single vineyard and single plot wines, including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay and a trio of top-quality Pinot Noirs.
