Soon after their arrival, the first Spanish colonists were already remarking the ideal vine growing conditions in Chile. In this country of great contrasts, embedded between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, the many wine regions differ significantly through micro-climate, topography and altitudes, and geological properties. TerraNoble owns vineyards in three different regions and so can provide different varieties with the most suitable growing conditions.
The big estate La Higuera stands in the Maule valley, in the southern part of the Central valley, some 250 Km from the capital Santiago, and cultivates a wide range of grape varieties. Further north, a Mediterranean climate nurses the Colchagua Valley which fits particularly well to the needs of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Carmenère and the Syrah grapes: in Los Lingues at the foot of the Andes where the offset temperature reaches 20°C between night and day, and in Los Cactus along the coastline. The Casablanca Valley, strongly influenced by the nearby Pacific with morning fog and little rain, is more suiting for other varieties like the Chardonnay or the Sauvignon Blanc.

TerraNoble’s wines are divided into three distinct lines: Reserva, Reserva Terroir and Gran Reserva. The Reservas are subtle and fruity with a short ageing in oak (but never new oak). As the name suggests, the Reservas Terroir come from specific plots and they are aged in oak for six months. Finally, the Gran Reservas are from grapes of the highest quality and are partly aged in new oak for a year.
TerraNoble offers an unbeatable combination of quality and pleasure at a moderate price. We invite you to discover these different wines and are sure that, like many of our customers, you will fall under their spell from the first sip. Salud!
The small, family-owned fruit eau-de-vie distillery Wilhelm Marx is located in the idyllic Bavarian Forest between Regensburg and Bodenmais, near the Great Arber, not far from the Czech border. To be precise, the distillery is located in the picturesque climatic health resort of Neukirchen at the typically Bavarian Gut Bärenhof. A natural oasis of unparalleled beauty.
The Karthäuserhof - The cradle of world-famous Rieslings, ever since 1335.
The Karthäuserhof is a magical spot. Not just because of its idyllic location but also because it is the eighth oldest winegrowing estate in the world and for centuries the cradle of world-famous Rieslings. It was founded in 1335 by Carthusian monks who received the estate as a gift from Prince-Elector Balduin of Luxembourg and operated it as a winery until secularisation. Since 1811 the Karthäuserhof has been owned by our family, now in the seventh generation.
