Over 25 years ago, the pioneering Norwegian Armador, (ship owner) Dan Odfjell discovered and fell in love with a small corner of the famous Maipo Valley, Chile. Born of rain in Bergen, Norway, he could not resist the attraction of the austral sun in this Virgilian setting.
Serendipity would later show that he had found land in Chile's premium red wine producing valley, where vitis vinifera has been cultivated since the 17th century. And where a soothing coastal breeze produces a microclimate conducive to distinct and beautiful wines. This was the start of our journey, the start of what we today know as Odfjell Vineyards.
Odfjell Vineyards has no available wines.
The work philosophy of Odfjell is based upon teamwork combining world class experience with youthful energy. Our international team of winemakers includes California vintner Paul Hobbs, and resident enologist Arnaud Hereu from Bordeaux. In the vineyards, Arturo Labbe works with careful attention on the vines to achieve the style and quality of grapes needed.
The mission of the Odfjell family, together with general manager, Pedro Torres, is to ensure an environment that allows our team to focus on the art and handcraft of winemaking. A passion for wine together with an uncompromising search for excellence is the common thread that unites our team.
