Viña Mayu

Viña Mayu - Extraordinary wines from the driest desert on earth

The Olivier family started Viña Mayu in 2005 and was the first to bring premium winemaking to northern Chile’s Elqui Valley. They chose the name "Mayu" - the Inca word for the Milky Way's "river of stars" – to honor the valley’s renownfor having the world’s clearest atmosphere and being the best place on earth for astronomy research. The inspiration for Mayu was to transform the extreme landscape to its full potential and produce premium wines from an otherwise overlooked terroir.
