The name Tamaya means “High Scenic Viewpoint”, a word that comes from the dialect of the Diaguita indigenous culture that inhabited the Limarí Valley between the 8th and the 6th centuries BC, in the same place where Viña Tamaya is currently located. Tamaya is also the name given to the highest hill in the area, from where it is possible to view the entire valley.
Pre-Columbian archaeological remains have been found within the property, some of which are the famous “tacita” (small cup) stones as well as other household utensils, all of which make this place an invaluable cultural and touristic heritage site.

The Limarí Valley, which is well known for its clear skies, completely uncontaminated air and a landscape of varied nuances, is no doubt one of the great prides of the 4th Region of Coquimbo.
Viña Tamaya decided to take advantage of these attributes and settled in the region to enjoy all of its unique characteristics. At the same time close to the sea, the Andes Mountains and the desert, with an ideal climate for growing vines, Viña Tamaya enjoys the perfect balance of varieties, quality and character in its terroir.
