The Vilafonté journey has always been premised on crafting wines that will show great endurance over time. There is a certain romance in opening and enjoying an older wine – an indelible imprint of time. A snapshot of nature in full swing captured in a bottle – evocative and ever evolving. Born from this ideology and forming part of our philosophy here at Vilafonte, we invite you to be part of this passage. Membership have limited access to older vintages.

An uncompromising attitude towards quality defines Vilafonté. Our customers ultimately remain the sole custodians of our reputation. We judge ourselves against the international investment grade wine market, but here alone quality is not enough. The most demanding wine collectors seek pedigree, desirability and historical propensity to retain and accumulate value. Vilafonté will strive to consistently emulate these traits to compete in this demanding market.
