Neyen de Apalta Winery

Founded: 2002

Brief History: Neyen de Apalta Winery is the perfect blend of tradition and modernity that was founded by the Rojas family. The winery produces premier red wines including Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Neyen means “spirit” and it is the spirit of Apalta that they are dedicated to capturing in each vintage.

The Rojas family transformed the oldest “bodega” in Apalta into the Neyen home by renovating the original 1890 adobe building where some of the valley’s earliest wines were created and aged.

Many of the original finishes including the wooden pillars, adobe walls, and stone fences were integrated into the new facility to create simplicity and functionality. The cellar rooms holds 600 barrels and the wine library stores every vintage of the Neyen wines.
