In 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 familys life since 1930s, decided to link their well-established vineyards holdings to a state-of-the-art, brand new winery. This decision marked the founding of TerraMater.
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. The vineyard can easily be found on the family properties, together with marvelous olive groves with thick trunks and green leafage, which produce the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Chile, and also apple orchards, which bear their abundant fruits during the summer months, making a true spectacle.
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.
