This valley owes its name to the Loncomilla River that receives water from the Achibueno and Putagán Rivers, which reach the Maule River at the height of the San Javier commune.
A high percentage of the País variety is found in this valley, given that it was the first to arrive in Chile, introduced by the Spanish during the period of the conquest more than 400 years ago.
What makes its vineyards unique in the world is that they are formed at the head or “gobelet”, without posts or wires, with a high plantation density.
Among its main activities we can highlight the “Culture and Wine” event and the celebration of the National Wine Day, every September 4th. These events are strongly promoted by the City Hall of San Javier in coordination with the vineyards of the Valley.
