The Neyen de Apalta winery is the perfect blend of tradition and modernity. It was founded by the Rojas family in 2002 on the site of one of the area's pioneering wineries that dates back to the late 19th century.
The Carmenère and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted in 1890 now produce excellent fruit due to their deep roots and natural balance, allowing us to reap the benefits that come with the richness and elegance of the passage of time.
With the support and experience of our consultants, Patrick Valette and Eduardo Silva, we look for a unique wine that fuses the soul of this land, the valley, and the restored winery. In the native Mapudungun language, Neyen means " spirit," and it is the spirit of Apalta that we are dedicated to capturing in each vintage.

It offers a nose of toasty oak, pencil lead, spice box, cinnamon, clove, sage, blueberry, and blackberry. Plush on the palate, it has layered fruit, succulent flavors and a finish which is long and pure. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
