FROM LOS PIRINEOS DE ARAGON, TO THE MAULE ANDES, TO ELABORATE THE BEST WINES. The brothers Francisco and Jesus Ceresuela Pons, came into Chile halfway through the last century, coming from Spain, from the little town of Laspuña, in the High Aragon. For forty years, they have been dedicated to produce wines in the Sagrada Familia zone, down the valley of the Lontue River. The have, at the moment, 200 Hectares, which are greatly influenced by the favorable climate of the zone (with middle temperatures and appropiate weather variations for a good development and maturity of the grape), with adequate soils, for the good production of wines.

There are also 50 Hectares of vineyards located in the Teno Valley that along with the one in Sagrada Familia, are elaborated and stored in our own cellars with a capacity of 2.500.000 liters of wine, in stainless steel barrels, epoxicated cement and some nobel wooden ones.
In the cellars of the Ceresuela Vineyard you can find antique noble wooden barrels rescued from the first cellar after the fire in 1994.
The vineyards are located surrounding a beatiful farm house and its park dating from 1860 and built by Mr. Carlos Garcés Grez, a visionary of the time, who planted the first vineyards, which were bought to his heirs in the 70s by the Ceresuela Pons brothers, who have maintained and renewed them incorporating them noble vine plants that predominate today, which united to the new technology, make possible the obtention of high quality wines.
The antique farm house is surrounded by beautiful gardens and trees, turning this into a nice atmosphere where life is felt and enjoyed.
In this place called Trapiche Bajo, the four seasons of the year can be clearly appreciated, where summer excels offering us a magnificent sun, pure air and a vigorous vegetation. It is doubtless, a harmonious landscape,where visitors remain breathless mainly at sunset when herons land on top of high old holm oak and oak trees.
The old church is sited in the large ranch to guard the faith of the people who work the generous land with their hands to produce the best grapes in South America.
For the cultivation of vine plants like Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Merlot, Chardonnay and Syrah, the most advanced and demanding wine growing techniques are used, having always on mind a responsible environment concern.
