Winery InfoIn 1996, at an age when most people are thinking of retiring, the three Canepa sisters, Gilda, Edda and Antonieta, responding to their passion for the production of fine wines which has been part of their family’s life since 1930’s, decided to link their well-established vineyards holdings to a state-of-the-art, brand new winery. The name TerraMater – Mother Land in Latin – tells us a lot about the company itself. This is a company that was born from exceptional lands, covered by noble and well established vines of 50, 60 and even 70 years old. TerraMater represents the perfect combination of traditional Chilean top quality winemaking practices, the search for innovation and the concern to achieve the very best our vineyards can deliver through the creation of wines which truly pay homage to the generosity of our Mother Earth.
