PRESERVING LANDS AND WATERS, CONSERVING BIODIVERSITY
At Viña Arboleda we are concerned with preserving the flora and fauna that represent the diversity of life in the Valle de Aconcagua by protecting the lands and waters they need to live upon.

Caring for this virgin land, which is clearly a refuge for many different species, is a sign of our commitment to nature and the sustainable management of the property.

Approximately, 1,450 hectares are kept virgin with the aim of preserving the biodiversity of the place.

The results of a study conducted in conjunction with the Chilean Institute for Biology and Biodiversity showed that our properties have over 65 types of birds and 8 different species of mammals, of which 10% and 25% are native of Chile respectively. We also have 96 types plant species, including trees and herbaceous plants, 41% of which are native of Chile.



PRESERVING OUR NATURAL LANDS AND WATER

Viña Arboleda is particularly concerned with protecting the ravines. Ravines work as natural corridors of plant life in the valley and help minimize soil erosion caused by rain.

Arboleda has concentrated on maintaining these places that constitute a true habitat of flora and fauna that make it possible for birds and other wild animals to coexist with the vineyards without interfering with each other.



A large, 800,000m3 reservoir that extends over 14 hectares is primarily supplied by water from the Aconcagua river and rainfall.

The reservoir also provides a resting place for migratory birds that fly over the area at different times of the year, including the Giant Coot, eight types of duck, and species such as the Pied-Billed Grebe and the white-necked Cocoi Heron that are difficult to observe in other wetlands.
