In the Peralillo area of the Colchagua Valley, La Capilla was the result of a search for new “terroirs” to produce grapes with additional richness and special characteristics. Acquired in 1992, Viu Manent undertook the major task of soil preparation and implementation of a strategic irrigation system.
