Rapel Valley is located in the central part of Chile. It includes the sub Valleys of Cachapoal and Colchagua. It exhibits a semi – arid Mediterranean climate with a winter – only rainfall pattern. During the growing season, we have warm and dry days and nights, which are pleasantly cool as a result of the flow of cold breezes coming from the Andes Mountains. Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from a very special area in Cachapoal, directly beneath the foothills of the Andes. The vines grow with the cold influence of the mountains and express all the minerality of the vineyards unique stony soil: “Las Kuras” means “stones” in our native language. The area of Cachapoal, where we source our Sauvignon Blanc has soil coming from an old river bed sourced from the Cachapoal river. It is a shallow soil with many big round pebbles, poor fertility and very good drainage, providing components to the wine complexity. At Lapostolle, the goal is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French winemaking philosophy and the superb terroirs of Chile. The founders chose Apalta in the Colchagua Valley, because weather and geographical conditions are perfect for producing high quality red wines and they also found blocks of unique vineyards.
