ABOUT THE VINEYARD
The Don Maximiano Estate is located in the Aconcagua Valley and plated to Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec vines that average 30 years in age. The vines thrive on hillsides up to 600 metres above sea level, 60 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean on the southern bank of the Aconcagua River. The region has a long dry season with moderately warm summer days cooled by the soft evening breezes that enter the valley from the Pacific Ocean.

The estate is divided into a series of vineyard blocks and the three that contribute grapes for Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve are Max I, Max II, and Max V, that total about 100 hectares of grapes carefully selected for this wine.

Max I block is planted on a northeast-facing hillside with 5°-30° of slope. On the highest part of the hillside, the weatbearing of the intrusive igneous rock produced shallow soils with sandy loam texture and few stones. The lower part of the hill has coarse alluvium with soils that go up to 2 metres deep of sandy loam texture with stoniness that can reach up to 50%.

Max II block is facing northwest with slopes varying from 5% to 20% and there are soils from 50 to 120 centimetres deep with sandy loam to clay loam texture and high stoniness content varying from 30% to 70% lying over coarse alluvium. 

Max V block is located on the south bank of the Aconcagua River in the alluvial plain. The soil is deep with clay to clay loam texture and high stone content of up to 80%. the subsoil is a coarse-grained alluvial terrace of the Aconcagua River, rich in well-rounded pebbles.
