In 1950, Jose Puertas Pons founded the Viñedos Puertas, a family-run business. Jose Puertas Pons originally hailed from the Spanish town of Campo (Huesca province, Aragon), located on the bank of the Esera River in a valley bordered by the lofty Turbon’s (2,492m) and Cotiella’s (2,912m) peaks. Due to hard work, dedication and a unique vision of development, he has created and enhanced Viñedos Puertas into one of the most important wine producers in the central zone of Chile.
Viñedos Puertas vineyard comprised 80 hectares of fields irrigated by water flowing from the Andes Mountains and a one-million-liter capacity winery known as El Milagro, located at the heart of Curico Valley, in Convento Viejo. The company focused on selling grapes and bulk wines, as well as custom winemaking, lending its services to the country’s largest winemakers and fomenting employment and development in the surrounding region.
Viñedos Puertas vision is to consolidate Viñedos Puertas in the international market, as a company committed to exceeding the expectations of their customers with high quality products.

Viñedos Puertas work starting with the terroir and varieties, clones and rootstocks selection, according to climate and soil conditions.
