LaFortuna Vineyards

LaFortuna Vineyards:
In 1918, Mr. Modesto Guell Coll arrived in Chile from Tarragona Spain. He came to Chile following the steps of his ancestors, all of them dedicated to the land and to wine making. His commercial ability allowed him to buy his first property at the Penon farm, located 15 km south from Santiago, now known as the Great Santiago.In 1942 Don Modesto Guell sold El Penon and with a great commercial vision, he purchased La Fortuna farm located 200 km south of Santiago. He planted the property with fine grapevines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. During this time, Don Modesto’s son, Daniel Guell Galofre joined his father and helped him to continue the family tradition, producing better wines each time.  Anticipating market  demands, Daniel planted different kinds of grape varieties, and he put all his effort into improving the harvest system and the quality of the fruit which was sold mainly in bulk to the big wineries.Once again the Guell’s vision took them to loftier accomplishments. In the late forties the current cellar was built consisting of 16 cement vats holding 55,000 liters each, 80 oak casks with 30,000 liters of capacity each, 45 stainless steel tanks with 1,200,000 liters and one automatic bottling line of 2,000 bottles per hour.The La Fortuna brand has been in the market since 1950. Nowadays the third Guell generation, headed by Don Daniel Guell Galofre and his son Luis Daniel Guell Borlando, maintain the tradition of producing wines with the same dedication and passion as their predecessors.  The old cellar, located in the Maule Region of Lontue Valley, has turned into a modern one, replacing parts of the old concrete and oak vats into stainless steel tanks. Modern equipment such as pneumatic presses, cooling systems and all the necessary infrastructure to produce the high quality wines that the international markets demands has been introduced.
Taking advantage of the excellent sanitary conditions of Chile, and maintaining the old traditions in  land cultivation, La Fortuna has transformed into one of the most important players in the organic wine production in all of Chile.

La Fortuna maintains the following certifications:
Clean Prduction Certified - HACCP
Certified Organic - IMO-Swiss    Certificate
Fair Trade Certified- FLO-CERT Germany    Certificate
