With over 60 years of professional experience, Santa Ema are pioneers in the Maipo Valley where they are always searching for the best expressions of terroir, from the mountains to the coast. The beginnings of Santa Ema date back to the beginning of the 20th century, when don Pedro Pavone Voglino, an Italian immigrant, sportsperson, and businessman, discovered a great terroir in Isla de Maipo, where the head offices still operate today. The founder and his son, Félix Pavone Arbea, an entrepreneur of great vision, created a winemaking business called Vinos Santa Ema in 1956. They equipped it with state of the art industrial infrastructure to develop and manage wines of the highest quality. Santa Ema has since opened its doors to Chile and the world, starting its exports in a solid and uninterrupted growth process, that spans more than 30 countries.
