The wine tradition of Santiago Queirolo: a legacy of passion and quality
The story of Santiago Queirolo is a testimony of dedication, quality and a deep connection with the land and tradition, becoming a journey through time that is intertwined with the rich wine tradition of Peru. Founded in 1880 by the Queirolo family, who emigrated from Italy and settled in the historic district of Pueblo Libre in Lima, this winery has become an icon of the production of high-quality wines and piscos in the country.
The pioneer behind this tradition was Don Santiago Queirolo Raggio, who began making wines and piscos for his own enjoyment in 1877. His passion for viticulture laid the foundations for what is today one of the most prominent families in the world of wine in Peru.
In 2003, the third generation of the Queirolo family took a bold step by acquiring land in the Ica Valley, a territory famous for its winemaking potential, to develop the high-quality wine known as Intipalka.
In 2008, Santiago Queirolo opened its doors to visitors from all over the world, offering tours to the winery and vineyards to spread the richness of wine and pisco culture, and in 2010 the winery took a strategic step by creating Enotours Perú, a company dedicated to disseminating, teaching and offering wine tourism experiences in the region. Following this vision of sharing the passion for wine and pisco, Hotel Viñas Queirolo opened its doors in 2011, establishing itself in a vineyard of more than 700 hectares in the sunny Ica valley, where the grapes that give life to the wines are grown. acclaimed Intipalka wines.
The vineyards are majestically located next to the Andes Mountains, more than 500 meters above sea level and more than 60 kilometers from the coast. This unique environment, with a desert climate and magnesium-rich soils, has proven to be perfect for the ripening and flowering of a variety of grapes, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, Tannat, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Quebranta .
