Vineyard Laura Hartwig

It all started in 1966, when Laura Bisquertt inherited the estate "Santa Laura" from her father, Osvaldo. He acquired it in 1928 and as was traditional in the area at that time, he dedicated himself to annual crops and livestock.

Between 1966 and 1971, her husband, Alejandro Hartwig C., bought adjoining plots and managed the field, maintaining its exploitation based on traditional crops and dairy.

In 1971, he decided to look for new labor options abroad and that is how he took over the offices of the German pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim, in Montreal, Canada.

He lived in Canada with his family for 10 years and following courses and multiple trips to the US and Europe, Alejandro becomes a great fan and wine connoisseur. He perceived the growing demand for classic French varieties in North America along with the increase in consumption of New World wines, and related the excellent climatic conditions of the Colchagua Valley to develop what he and Laura considered as their "Retirement Project".

They started planting the field in 1978 with Bordeaux strains and selling their high quality grapes to large vineyards. In 1994 they built the winery and in 1995 they launched their first Laura Hartwig wine, with a Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva that gave much to talk about.

Today, it is the children of Laura and Alejandro who are in charge of this wonderful field and strive to produce wines with the same principles that their parents instilled in them.
