Our Story

Extraordinary wines from the driest desert on earth – experience the clear skies and high elevation of Chile’s Elqui Valley with every sip of Mayu.

The Olivier family started Mayu in 2005 and were the pioneers of bringing premium winemaking to the Elqui Valley.

The name “Mayu” derives from the Inca word for the Milky Way’s “river of stars” and alludes the valley being known for having the world’s clearest atmosphere and being the best place on earth for astronomy research.

Elqui’s arid desert climate exposes vines to intense solar radiation and large temperature fluctuation. This leads to wines with concentrated aromatics, deeper color and developed tannins.
