Established in Chile's Curico Valley in 1951, Aresti Family Vineyards has been supplying top quality wine to other producers for 50 years. In the late 1990's the family began pursuing their own table wine program, bottling their best wines under the Aresti label. All wines are estate bottled.
Aresti produces two ranges of wine, the medium-bodied "A" range wines for everyday enjoyment, and the more intensely flavored Reserve wines. The "A" range includes a Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Carmenere, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Reserve range, made from grapes grown in the 'Rio Claro' sub-appellation of the Curico Valley, includes Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Modern winemaking facilities, careful vineyard management, and a commitment to producing wines with a high quality/value relationship are the hallmarks of Aresti Family Vineyards.
