Nestled against the mountain foothills at an elevation of between 1450 and 1700 feet is the Liguai estate, the exclusive source of Perez Cruz wine and the home of the estate winery. The estate is located in the Maipo-Andes subregion of the Maipo Valley, where the vines are double Guyot trained and drip irrigated. Yielding 2.43 tonnes per acre, the grapes are harvested by hand at optimum maturity levels.
