The explorers

“If we were to stop dreaming, we would not be Vintae”, and sometimes these crazy dreams become reality as wine.

Vintae is a new way of living wine. We were born in La Rioja, one of the areas with the most wine tradition in all of Spain, but for us no vineyard is too far away and that has led us to fifteen denominations of origin in our country and to cross the Atlantic Ocean to begin producing New World wines in Chile.
Because if there is one thing we are passionate about, it is breaking out our explorer spirit in search of ancient hidden vineyards. At Vintae we know that each region has its own way of honoring wine. That is why we like to respect the tradition of each destination and trust the wine growers of each locale. Only in this way can we tell the story behind each one of our wines.
