In the Rapel Valley at the foothills of the Andes mountains school friends, Felipe Ibáñez and Jorge Gutiérrez, founded Viña Anakena. Their project was to be exceptional and nothing should be left to chance. Convinced that to achieve distinction they must offer the highest quality, they scoured the celebrated wine-producing regions of the world, soaking up the culture and the most up-to-date winery techniques and found out what was expected of the wines from this remote but well-endowed land. Thus in 1999 the first vineyards were planted in Alto Cachapoal and today Viña Anakena has 165 hectares in the Cachapoal Valley, 148 hectares in Leyda in the San Antonio Valley and 100 hectares in Cerro Ninquén in the Colchagua Valley. Leyda and Ninquén were almost unknown as far as wine production goes but the first shipments have managed to surprise international wine buffs with their extraordinary quality and originality. Anakena wines are exported to more than 32 countries around the world and are constantly praised by the most demanding experts.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Rex Pickett, Sideways

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
