Our Terroir


In this valley there are indications of crops since 1500, being the Itihue, a Mapuche community, the first to occupy and cultivate the valley. Since then until today, San Carlos has remained an agricultural zone, with apples being the icon of this area.


The valley has a mild subtropical weather with an oceanic façade, also known as Mediterranean, with large temperature fluctuations between day and night, which favors the pigmentation of the fruit and the quality of the crops. Average temperatures vary between 12º and 15º C.


The valley is at a height of 161mts. above sea level and is located between the Ñuble River and the Perquilauquén River, and is naturally protected by the Andes Mountains, where there are also 2 volcanoes; Nevados de Chillán and Nevado de Longaví. It is an almost flat plain, with minimal and slightly undulating slopes.


Our soil is Trumao, a word of Mapuche origin that means “Volcanic Soil”. It is formed mainly by volcanic ash and sediments of fluvial origin. The soils of El Torreón sector are arable, of good quality for crops. They offer adequate productivity and have practically no limitations in their use. With good drainage, about 12% organic matter, average pH of 5.7.
