Terra Cruz was founded in one of the most renowned wine growing valleys in the world – the Central Valley of Chile. The history of Chilean wine extends to the 16th century, when the conquistadors brought common European grape wine along with them as they colonized South America. Terra Cruz, means the land with crosses. Terra Cruz owes its name to the crosses that were built to protect travelers throughout the Colchagua Valley during the Colonial times, when the first settlements in the area took place. Our winery honors those men and women who first established in this area and that has now become world known for its quality wines. The concept and style of Terra Cruz wines has been specially developed by best winemakers from Chile and Italy in order to create a unique concept – Chilean wines with distinctive Italian influence. Terra Cruz wines create a remarkable symbiosis fusing the grapes of the New World with the traditions of the Old World.
