About the Winery:

Cono Sur is present in seven of the most important wine valleys of Chile, where each Valley’s micro-climate determining factors, such as abundant luminosity, significant daily temperature variation, dry weather during ripening season and fresh Andean irrigation water, contribute to the production of pure and wholesome grapes.

In fact, Cono Sur was born around the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Chile. We were the first in Chile to produce Premium Pinot Noir, and also the first to export the variety. Producing Pinot Noir has been Cono Sur’s most exciting challenge, and it is the only variety present in all of our ranges.

Since its beginning, Cono Sur has been deeply committed to take care of the environment by developing practices such as natural vineyard management, organic production, ISO certifications, and CO2 emissions balance through our CarbonNeutral delivery status, always believing that high quality wine production can work hand-in-hand with eco-friendly practices.

This sustainable path has led us to meet the highest standards in terms of social performance, environmental care, transparency and corporate responsibility, granting us the B-Corp certification.

These good practices are reflected in our Bicicleta line that was born in 2012 as a tribute to the vineyard workers, who daily attend their workplace on this vehicle.

The creative use of technology, the orientation towards quality, and the respect for the environment are part of the fundamental values of Cono Sur in order to create quality and innovative products from South America, on whose western edge lies Chile and its gifted wine valleys.
