In 1984, Bruno Prats and Paul Pontallier, two well-known agronomists and oenologists from Bordeaux, France, decided to look for high quality land in Chile to plant a totally new vineyard. Their third associate was their Chilean friend agronomist and oenologist Felipe de Solminihac, whose origins are actually French. In 1990, they acquired 43 acres in the 'Quebrada de Macul' - historically the heart of the Maipo Valley vineyard - at the foot of the Andes Mountain, near Santiago city. They planted typical Bordeaux varieties, grown in Chile for many years already. The construction of the cellar was completed in 1993. In January 2003, Ghislain de Montgolfier, an agronomist and oenologist from the Champagne region in France, and an old friend of the founders, became the fourth associate, or the 'fourth musketeer' as he says, evoking the novel of Alexander Dumas. – Description from dvoristanac
