Produced and bottled by Vina Luis Felipe Edwards (VLFE)—The estate was established in 1936 by Luis Felipe Edwards Sr. who purchased the Fundo San Jose de Puquillay estate. This Colchagua-Valley-based operation sits nestled in a secluded horseshoe-shaped valley, separated from the majestic snow-capped Andes by the smaller San Fernando ridge. Since then, the Edwards family has been passionately devoted to improving the winery and the vineyards, producing top-quality wines from carefully tended vines of up to 70 years old, for which they have accrued an extensive medal tally. Today, the estate's original plantings of a mere 148 acres have increased to a whopping 964 acres, which extend up into the hills at heights of 2,953 feet above sea level. They have also acquired additional estate vineyards in the Leyda and Maule valleys, for a total of 4,571.5 acres of estate vineyards.
