The De Martino family arrived in Chile from Italy in 1934 and settled in Isla de Maipo. Today, the winery is managed by brothers Sebastian and Marco De Martino who share an ongoing focus in creating wines which represent the family and their origin in the purest way possible. This philosophy matches well with the family-focused values shared by FMV and Berry Bros. & Rudd.
Day to day operations are run by the impressive and well-travelled Sebastian and Marco De Martino, with winemaking under the watchful eye of one of Chile’s finest winemakers, Marcelo Retamal. Between them, Sebastian, Marco and ‘Reta’ have transformed De Martino over the past decade into arguably Chile’s most progressive and dynamic producer.
De Martino is at the top of its game in Chile, with a range of wines that spans from Limarí in the north to Itata in the south. They work sustainably across all their vineyards and use organic practices for their Itata and single vineyard wines.
These wines are each fermented with native yeasts, avoiding any additives that may alter their personality. Likewise, aging is made in stainless steel, concrete, 5000 litres foudres, used barriques (average age ten years old), to allow the wines to reflect their origin.
