Almaviva was born from an encounter between Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro in 1997 in order to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine.
The first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
The success of Almaviva has given rise to the Primer Orden category, a Spanish term that corresponds to the French concept of Grand Cru and the English estate grown wines.
