Tierra del Fuego – Chile

HISTORY AND “FAMILY TRADITION”

“The tradition of the Cremaschi Furlotti Winery starts in Italy with my great-grandfather”, indicates Pablo Cremaschi Furlotti, President of the company.  “Later on, my grandfather migrated to Argentina where he founded Viña Furlotti, the fourth largest winery of the country with over 3.700 hectares of vineyards”.
Pablo and his father continued the 120 years of winemaking tradition in Loncomilla – Chile, a terroir that provides pure natural fruit, which united to the great winemaking knowledge and experience guarantees extraordinary quality and distinctive style in each wine. The family tradition and Italian heritage continues today with the fourth generation of the Cremaschi family working the Peñasco Vineyards.
