THE OLDEST VINEYARD OF SOUTHAMERICA

“It is an ideal region to produce wines that possess a quality that can only be compared with the productions of the best wine making countries of the world.”

Max Rives, Director of the French National Institute for Agricultural Research.

The Tacama Vineyard, located in the oasis of Ica, has an extension of more than 250 hectares. It is situated on alluvial land, formed during the large prehistoric ice ages, when giant landslides slid down the Andes into the Pacific Ocean and formed the valleys of today. As a result, the subsoil of the valley of Ica is sandy and rocky –similar to some of the best vineyards of France–, which exercises an influence on the properties of the vines and on the quality of their fruit.

In terms of the climate, Ica and particularly Tacama, benefit from the cold air of the Andes that gives it beautiful starry nights, from the heat of the desert and the mist of the Pacific Ocean (some 50 km away), producing a wide temperature range worthy of the large wine producing areas of the world.

As Max Rives, the former Director of the French National Institute for Agricultural Research INRA, well said, the region is very suitable for the production of wines in exceptional conditions, thanks to its climate and its soil. “This allows the production of characteristic and unchangeable types of wines, with a quality comparable solely to the productions of the best wine making countries of the world”, he concluded.

THE OLDEST VINEYARD OF SOUTHAMERICA

Due to the shortage of rain in Ica, water –during the season when the water levels rise– is supplied through a system of canals, aided by deep water wells, to water the land within the timeline required by the vines. According to the times, our vineyard currently has state-of-the-art technified irrigation systems.
