The unique combination of soil, light and water having the Aconcagua Valley, also plays an important role in the success of Viña San Esteban. The terroir of Alto Aconcagua is well equipped for growing vineyards, producing a wide variety of quality grapes. In particular, the family of In Situ wine was created to show this terroir as one of the best wine regions of Chile.

Today, Horacio Vicente made the Aconcagua Valley home, where he lives with his wife and daughters.
