    THE STORY: founded by Don Melchor de Santiago Concha y Toro and his wife, Emiliana Subercaseaux, in 1883.[2] To start the winery, he brought grape varieties from the Bordeaux region in France.[2] The grapes that he brought were: Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon blanc, Semillon, Merlot, and Carmenère. The vineyard was incorporated as a stock company in 1923 and shares were sold in the Santiago stock market.[2] Concha y Toro began exporting wine in March 1933 to the port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In 1950, the winery began to acquire more vineyards and also began the process of adapting its business to new markets and meeting a higher demand.
