Santa Rita

The company's headquarters are located in a suburb of Buín about 40 kilometers south of the capital Santiago in Chile. It was founded in 1880 by politician Domingo Fernández Concha (1838-1910). After him, his son-in-law Don Vicente Garcia-Huidobro continued the business. In 1988 it was taken over completely by Ricardo Claro Valdés. The empire also includes the wineries Carmen (Nativa), Centenario and Sur Andino in Chile, and Doña Paula in the Mendoza area of Argentina. The old cellar at the Alto Jahuel headquarters in Buin is a national monument. In 1814, under the leadership of General Bernardo O'Higgins (1778-1842), 120 patriots hid here during the Chilean War of Independence against the Spanish crown and later fought for Chile's freedom. The restaurant "Doña Paula" is also run here
