In 1888, Don Hermon Folatre arrived at the town of Pichamann in the Maule Region of Chile along with stock from his homeland. He began to personally produce wine for his own consumption, creating the first Chilean wines with a French last name. Today, “Folatre” wine is bottled for consumption around the world. Folatre is a wine that is French in heritage but that exhibits all the charm, flavor and aroma of a diverse geography blessed by the sun and it’s soil.
