Our History

In 2004, Alexander Vik, a Norwegian entrepreneur, proposed the creation of a world-class vineyard to produce a unique wine.

2006

To find the best terroir, he gathered a team of oenologists, climatologists, geologists, viticulturalists and agronomists to search South America. In 2006, Alexander Vik chose the best terroir with optimal climatic conditions for grape growing and purchased 11.000 acres in Chile.

Place of Gold

The specific location chosen was the Millahue Valley, or “Place of Gold”, as named by the indigenous people.

Here “VIK” was born and it embodies the perfect fusion between man, experience, land, climate and the most advanced technology.

Our vineyard, or “Place of Gold”, is located in the interior of the valley among innumerable gorges, offering us a variety of unequaled terroir and small microclimates – each with distinct exposures and cooled by coastal breezes -- giving it the complexity sought after and assuring us that we are on track to reach our objective of producing the best wine in South America.
