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 White Blend Rapel Valley Ona Viognier Riesling Chardonnay 2005


    It combines the apricot and floral aromas of Viognier with the citrus and mineral notes of Riesling, and the tropical aromas of Chardonnay. Would pair well with poultry and seafood. Read More

  • Anakena Malva Vineyard Carmenere 2009


    I found this to have a nose reminiscent of cab franc. Lots of straw, cranberry, pomegranate, some mineral and heavy red currant. It's dry. Loads of earth, red fruit, hay, graphite and slight floral tones. Pretty flavors. Read More

  • Sauvignon Blanc Rapel Valley 2009


    This is the best bargain of all times! Lots of honey & gooseberry make this a stunning sauvignon blanc.If you were to do a blind tasting, it would compare to the $15 bottles of wines. Read More

  • Anakena Chardonnay Rapel Valley 2010


    I picked this up at Total Wine in Atlanta while I was there on business. I liked the little blurb (which I cannot remember now) so I bought it. I really like this wine. It is much more acidic than your usual Chardonnay. The apricot taste is very apparent from the first sip. It was an unusual surprise. Read More

  • Anakena Merlot 2010


    this wine is the nastiest shit i have put in my mouth since i can remember really. the aromas are similar to a perm you got age 11. im surprised it didnt burn our throats with its fecal and chemical notes. replace strawberry and blackberry with ammonia and portapotty. drank a coors light afterwards, really cleanses the palette.

  • Sauvignon Blanc Rapel Valley 2009


    I tend to like dry (but not bone dry) whites and generally hunt for Sauvignon blancs. This has a nice gravely flavor that I like. I was surprised to find that I had only paid $7 for this -- thought it was probably a $10 wine. Read More
