Winemaker Notes

#35 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buy of 2020

Enjoy ripe blackberries and plums in perfect balance with subtle hints of cloves, black pepper and cedar as a result of twelve months of barrel aging.

A great match with red meat, pork, and heavier foul and game.

JS 92
James Suckling
A great vintage has delivered a very intense, fresh and defined style with aromas of brambly blackberries and dark plums and such attractively fleshy style on the palate. Very juicy, smooth and fresh. So plush and silky. Long, fresh tannins here. Drink or hold.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Spicy berry aromas are accented by black tea and leafy scents that create an ideal Carmenère nose. A tightly concentrated palate offers mixed berry flavors touched up by the right level of oak and spice. A steady finish brings juicy acidity and toasty notes.

Vina San Pedro More About 1865 Wines Winery Video

Vina San Pedro was founded in 1865 in the Curico Valley by the Correa brothers. Today, more than 150 years later, it's still San Pedro's home valley. The brothers were pioneers in bringing different varieties from the Old Continent to the Valley.

San Pedro is now one of the most important vineyards in Chile and one of the top exporters, present in more than 80 countries around the world.

Also, San Pedro's Cachapoal Andes winery, home to the finest wines, is a place to discover the highest expression of Chileís diverse terroirs. Here, wines likes Altair, Cabo de Hornos and Sideral are made.

The Cachapoal Andes winery is located 110 km south of the city of Santiago, with vineyards at the foot of the Andes. Planted 500 meters above sea level, the vines are exposed to wide temperature variations between day and night, a peculiarity that allows the fruit to mature slowly, resulting in grapes with improved acidity, tannins, flavors, and aromatic profiles.

Dramatic geographic and climatic changes from west to east make Chile an exciting frontier for wines of all styles. Chile’s entire western border is Pacific coastline, its center is composed of warm valleys and on its eastern border, are the soaring Andes Mountains.

Chile’s central valleys, sheltered by the costal ranges, and in some parts climbing the eastern slopes of the Andes, remain relatively warm and dry. The conditions are ideal for producing concentrated, full-bodied, aromatic reds rich in black and red fruits. The eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry—is home to intense red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.

The Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys specialize in Cabernet and Bordeaux Blends as well as Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape.

Chilly breezes from the Antarctic Humboldt Current allow the coastal regions of Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley to focus on the cool climate loving varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Chile’s Coquimbo region in the far north, containing the Elqui and Limari Valleys, historically focused solely on Pisco production. But here the minimal rainfall, intense sunlight and chilly ocean breezes allow success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata in the south make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Spanish settlers, Juan Jufre and Diego Garcia de Cáceres, most likely brought Vitis vinifera (Europe’s wine producing vine species) to the Central Valley of Chile sometime in the 1550s. One fun fact about Chile is that its natural geographical borders have allowed it to avoid phylloxera and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
