Chilean wine producer with a Mediterranean vibe


Santiago, Chile

TerraMater is a family winery. In 1996 the three Canepa sisters, Gilda, Edda and Antonieta, following their passion for the production of fine wines that has been in their Italian family since the early 1930s, decided to use their renowned vineyards in a new project focused in high quality production of fine wines: TerraMater.

Today, Alfredo Schiappacasse, Antonieta’s son, continues the family tradition, taking care of TerraMater, its lands and the people behind the wines and olive oils. TerraMater, Mother Earth in Latin, is named in honor of Mother Earth and her importance during all the years the Terroir was formed.

Many years ago the lands of Isla de Maipo didn’t have much water, they were mainly sand and stones; where nothing grew, not even a thread of grass. But one day they would become lands full of life and water with a unique climate. Once the years passed, the sediment that the Maipo River brought from the Andes Mountains accumulated, aided by an ingenious irrigation system with parapets and the use of 60,000 hens to make the land ideal for viticulture. This is how a new terroir, unique and today fundamental to TerraMater, was formed layer by layer.

Our Caperana estate of exceptional lands with noble vineyards up to 70 years old along with wonderful olive trees with thick trunks and beautiful green foliage.
