Luis Felipe Edwards
Established in 1976, Vina Luis Felipe Edwards is undeniably one of the most progressive wineries in Chile. Always keen to invest in land, technology and people, the Colchagua Valley based operation sits nestled amongst the Alamos trees, separated from the colossal Andes by the smaller San Fernando ridge. The winery produces over 1 million cases (9lt) per year and exports to over 40 countries, and remains a family run operation, allowing greater control to ensure that the LFE brand name is synonymous with quality and traditional family values.

Goyenechea Winery was founded in 1868 by the brothers Santiago and Narciso Goyenechea.
Today, the fourth and fifth generations of the Goyenechea family work together with the same dedication and commitment as their predecessors, making Goyenechea a true family-run business in the world of winemaking.
Today the winery is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, which includes stainless-steel tanks, cooling equipment, barrel room, storage room for bottle aging -all in a temperature-controlled environment-, and a tasting room, among other innovations. At present, Goyenecha Winery’s production is more diversified than ever and aimed at greater added value. Only quality bottled wines are produced.
A traditional 19th century wine estate, Chateau Canet is today recognised as one of the leading domaines of the Minervois region in the heart of the Languedoc Roussillon. Today, all the original buildings are still in use although they have been significantly modernised. The old winery is fitted with state-of-the-art wine making equipment, allowing Canet to blend traditional ‘savoir-faire’ with modern day techniques. The stables are now used as the “aging cellar”, where the wines quietly mature until ready to be bottled and enjoyed.
In 1858, the family ducourt made its home at Château des Combes, an estate with a few hectares of vines in Ladaux, a small country village south-west of Bordeaux. Over the years, their passion for wine became a professional vocation, and both the ‘savoir-faire’ and the vineyard were successively handed down and expanded.
Today, the Ducourt family possesses one of the largest independent vineyard holdings in the region : 440 hectares of vines, spread out over 13 châteaux in the Entre-Deux-Mers and Saint-Emilion appellations, which produce 2.5 million bottles per year.
Each generation has managed to adhere to the philosophy dictated by their elders : to get the best out of each ‘terroir’ through a combination of traditional and modern techniques to produce great wines which are both authentic and affordable.
Bodegas Patrocinio winery is the driving force behind Uruñuela, a town of 967 residents uniquely positioned in the heart of the Rioja Alta. They started out as 200 grape growers with small vineyards in Uruñuela, who in 1985 decided to join forces to produce and market their own wines. This marked the birth of the exemplary cooperative, Bodegas Patrocinio.
