Polkura Winery, Winemaking Journey of Two Friends

The passion for Syrah is the concept that best defines the nature of Polkura Winery. Their winemaking journey began in 1998 when winemaker Sven Bruchfield and his friend Gonzalo Munoz were dreaming of a future wine project to do together. Gonzalo was studying in Spain, and Sven was working in different wine regions around the world. They met at that time near Narbonne, in the south of France. A tasting of a Mediterranean style Syrah in one of the local wineries matched with a succulent lamb dish helps define the exquisite qualities of this grape variety to be the base for their future wine.

 

Discovery of Winery Dreams

Once both were back in Chile, they set out to find the best location to develop a vineyard to maximize the grape quality and, therefore, the wines they had in mind. In 2002 they found a neglected property in the Marchigüe area, the Colchagua Valley’s western end. The land met the soil and climate requirements needed to fulfill their dream, and 12 hectares of vineyards were planted. Today this vineyard area is well known at the Polkura Winery and the beginning of their winery dreams.

Due to the unique terroir, Polkura Winery wines have won a multitude of domestic and international awards.

 

Marine and Mountainous Beauty Surrounding the Winery

Polkura Winery is located less than 30 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Although the marine influence is much more significant than in the rest of the valley, the mountain range separating Marchigüe from Pichilemu’s coastal town prevents the sea breezes from entering the valley.
