Loma Larga is owned by the Díaz family, whose interest in wine was noted in the Paris wine exhibition of 1889. Don Manuel Joaquín Díaz Escudero Alvarez de Toledo, grandfather of the current owners of Loma Larga, personally brought French vines to Chile from his successive tours of Paris and Bordeaux. These were originally planted in his estate in the heart of Santiago. With the intention of keeping this wine tradition alive, the family studied the climate and soil of their Casablancan estate, Loma Larga and, firmly believing in its terroir potential, began planting vines in 1999. They are now recognised as one of the best producers of cool climate red wines in Chile. Loma Larga means ‘long hill’, a reference to the raised vineyard site which benefits from the cooling influence of the wind. The Lomas del Valle range is also made from estate-grown fruit and offers a brighter, more youthful interpretation of the producer’s house style.

It is really interesting to find a parcel of slightly more mature Syrah from the New World and this example from the Casablanca Valley is quite fascinating. The black cherry fruit is complemented by notes of wood smoke and bacon fat and the tannins are supple and refined. It is an elegant wine with a long length.
