Since 1986, when Miguel Angel de Gregorio discovered the excellent qualities of this land, the interaction between the two, between man and land, between intelligence and potential, has enabled Finca Allende to give their wines a unique personality of the very highest level.

Because our products are perishable, we take great care in delivering your order. We will hand pack and prepare your order the day before arrival. We must have an alternative delivery instruction for any private address, such as "leave in porch/on step/with a neighbour". This is particularly important if you are sending a surprise gift.
