Chilean winery Viña Villard is aiming for 20% growth in 2004, after registering growth of 15% in 2003, Villard's French-born president Thierry Villard said.

The winery produces 20,000 cases per annum at its 23 hectares in Casablanca near the capital Santiago. It is planning to plant a further four hectares in 2004.
 
The winery generated sales income of US$500m in 2003, with 95% of its production going to the export market, principally the UK and Brazil. And Villard hopes to begin exporting to the US in 2004.
