In the late 1990s, Felipe Ibáñez and Jorge Gutiérrez, who had been friends since childhood, founded Viña Anakena in Alto Cachapoal, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains with the goal of crafting elegant, innovative, and distinctly New World wines that reflected their origin and Chile’s potential as a producer of world-class fine wines.

Convinced that high quality was synonymous with distinction, they visited the world’s most renowned wine regions to learn the latest viticultural and enological techniques and bring them home to Chile along with most up-to-date technology for crafting fine wines. In 1999 they planted their first vineyard in Alto Cachapoal and built the Viña Anakena winery, leaving no detail to chance. This outstanding facility is modern, functional, and beautifully finished.

In planning the Anakena winery facility, architect Luis Uriarte began with a quintessential colonial style and incorporated all the modern elements needed to vinify and sell our wines.

The wine cellar itself was designed in 1999 by Techniques Trading, a leading South African firm that also advised us on acquiring the latest technology. A high-tech laboratory allows the enological team to precisely manage all indicators and variables to ensure the highest quality product.

The 6.000 m2 cellar has 4 naves that house the laboratory, 148 stainless steel tanks, specially equipped rooms that can hold 1,300 barrels, and our “cellar door,” where we welcome visitors from around the world.

At Viña Anakena, the quality of our wines is more than a goal—it is a core value. Our work is guided by the pursuit of excellence and attaining the highest possible quality. Our unique style in crafting fine wines enables us to offer special, distinctive wine that satisfy the most demanding consumers. We want our wines to reflect their origins in our own vineyards, located in Chile’s best terroirs, as well as the experience and vision of our viticultural and winemaking team.
