Located between the cold coast of the South Pacific Ocean and the omnipresent Andean massif that divides Chile from the rest of the continent, Elqui Valley hides as many mysteries as stars. Considered one of the most important energy centres on the planet, in recent decades it has become a meeting point for astronomers, winemakers and diverse travellers, all fascinated by its inexplicable magnetism.
Mr Álvaro Flaño, the family’s patriarch, was the one who saw the great potential the valley has. To him, the convergence of astronomy, wine making and energy is not only because of the valley’s geographical characteristics, but also because of a natural interaction between divine information and human understanding, which translates into creation. “Wine is a human tribute to heaven and earth, very similar to drinkable poetry and, therefore, a true reflection of its origin.”
