Anakena

In the Rapel Valley, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, school friends Felipe Ibáñez and Jorge Gutiérrez founded Viña Anakena. Their project was to be exceptional and nothing should be left to chance. Convinced that to achieve distinction they must offer the highest quality, they scoured the celebrated wine-producing regions of the world, soaking up the culture and the most up-to-date winery techniques, and found out what was expected of the wines from this remote but well-endowed land. Thus in 1999 the first vineyards were planted in Alto Cachapoal; today Viña Anakena has 155 planted hectares in the Cachapoal Valley, 128 planted hectares in Leyda —San Antonio Valley—, 70 planted hectares in Cerro Ninquén —Colchagua Valley—, and 60 hectares in Las Cabras, Rapel Valley. Anakena wines are exported to more than 40 countries around the world and are constantly praised by the most demanding experts.

  • Anakena Cabernet Sauvignon Rapel Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    It's crap. Thin, no nose, little varietal character. The last third of my bottle went down the drain. I will never buy any wine from this winery again. There is too much good wine to waste your time and money on this wine. Read More

  • Anakena Chardonnay Rapel Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Bought this wine when I was visiting in Florida. Totally forgot about it until now.A light straw color, aroma of tropical fruits with orange and melon more dominate. On the palate the fruits came out but were muted. Because of the color, I was looking for oak but it wasn't there. Enough acid makes this a nice food wine but can do well on its own... Read More
