In 1992, François drew attention to the distant lands of Chile and, having bought a plot of land, planted the first vineyards. The Lolol Valley was chosen as a terroir, in which Lurton became a pioneer in the field of winemaking. The winery itself was named after the last indigenous people of Chile. The first wines of Asienda Araucano appeared in 1997.
The company currently has 28 hectares of vineyards in Lolol and 15 hectares in Santa Cruz in the Kolchagua Valley. The region is characterized by hot, dry weather and a significant difference in day and night temperatures. Pacific breezes and wet morning mists play a cooling role. Most of the precipitation falls in the winter, so in the summer the vineyards undergo additional irrigation.
