VLC is a family owned and operated boutique organic winery that focuses on quality over quantity. Its roots stem from a love of family, culinary arts and all things winemaking. Though this story begins much farther from the farm in Colchagua Valley where these hand selected grapes are produced.

The roots of this wine are steeped in the traditions of the Big Easy. New Orleans, Louisiana where Michael, a native, and Kathryn, a Californian, fell in love with each other amid the culture and spirit of the city that is synonymous with music, art, food and drinking.

Los Chanchitos Farm

While traveling through South America, we were captivated by Chile, Its diverse landscape, warm and welcoming people, and enduring traditions. We felts at home in Santa Ana, nestled in the famous Colchagua valley between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, where Huasos ride horses, make wine and surf. Who could resist this life?

When we found our land, a simple pumpkin patch, we epitomized the sentiment: Happy as pigs in mud, and thus Los Chanchitos! We envisioned a farm where we could grow our own food and make our own wine to share with friends and family through hard work, love and attention to detail.

Our goal is to craft wines that can be paired with great good in what we consider to be the modern performance art of our time.
