De Martino

Our winery was founded in 1934 by Pietro De Martino, who arrived in Chile in search of a place to satisfy his passion for winemaking. Looking for the perfect site, he found Isla de Maipo in the Maipo Valley, just 50 km (31 mi) from Santiago between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The village earned its name because it had been surrounded by a number of branches of the Maipo River until the early 20th century. A powerful earthquake and changes in climate have since dried up all but one large branch of the river. Our vineyards now stand on one of the former branches of the river, which lends the soil characteristics that are unique in the valley and particularly good for grape production. The property has grown tremendously since Don Pietro founded it so many years ago. It now has 300 organically managed hectares planted to vine and still maintains its sense of being a family winery. The third and fourth generations of the De Martino family now work in the winery every day. Today, more than Read more »

  • De Martino Carignan Single Vineyard El Leon Chile Maule 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A bench mark producer of an outstanding array of wines from an equally outstanding list of terroir. The El Leon is a superb example of Carignan in Chile. This vines are well over 60 years old and producing great juice. This is a dense wine, and really requires a meal to be thoroughly enjoyed. A slight bell pepper taste can turn some people off t...

  • De Martino Carignan Single Vineyard El Leon Chile Maule 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Dense purple color with short pink rim, nose reticent today but notes of red cherry. Very dense with high tannin, high alcohol, some very ripe mulberry notes and hints of vanilla. Big and powerful with very sweet ripe fruit and incredible intensity, has potential to age, really delicious. Read More
