Carmenere

Located just outside of Santiago, De Martino has a long history in Chile as a premium winery. Their leadership continues to this day as they have led the way promoting Carmenere and introducing it to market the world over. Carmenere is one of the greenest red varieties in the world, which has been an issue with many consumers. And while winemakers have in the past struggled to conceal this greenness, Marcelo looks to harness the green, allowing it to add spice and complexity to the De Martino wines.

  • I had the pleasure of visiting De Martino when in Chile last December. It was a fantastic experience both in terms of the winery's hospitality and in terms of the phenomenal wines they produce. What is even more remarkable is that De Martino produces such excellent wines without charging exorbitant prices.
