Rancagua is located in the province of Cachapoal, in the Libertador General Bernardo O'Higgins region, 87 kilometers from Santiago, being a city that represents the traditions of the Chilean countryside which has earned it the popular denomination of "huasa city".

Some of the strains that can be found here are chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon (the one with the highest amount of hectares), syrah, carménère or malbec.
