Aconcagua Wine

To the north of Santiago is the Aconcagua Valley, a small winegrowing area of just 1,098 hectares best-known for its production of red wines. In fact, Aconcagua has earned international prestige as one of Chile’s highest regarded wines. In 2004, Vina Errázuriz’s “Seña”, an iconic Bordeaux-style blend and one of the premier reds of Chile, placed ahead of both Château Lafite and Château Margaux in the Berlin Tasting, a milestone for the Chilean wine industry likened to the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris.

Aconcagua experiences a Mediterranean climate with 8.5 inches of annual rainfall and boast variety of soils dominated by clay and sand in the east and granite and clay in the west. The area is also home to the America’s highest point, Mt. Aconcagua. At 22,828 feet, the snowcapped mountain provides adequate water to the vines below.

The valley also runs along the river that stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Andes and experiences significant Read more »

    Wine review by Inti

  • V.e.s.a. Seña Red Bordeaux Blend 2004


    Seña is plush wine with aromas of leather, cedar, dark dark cherry fruit that is a really great bottle of wine worthy of cellaring and cherishing but... this wine has a note that is reminiscent of ripe earth-- ie some will say it smells like poop from a barnyard. It is not a defect but its earthiness is either loved or unloved (try a bottle bef... Read More

It has a smokey quality with chocolaty... Read More

  • Villard Estates Esencía Grand Reserve Pinot Noir 2002


    Perhaps Cono Sur has been pushing the envelope for better and better Pinot's from Chile for years but Villard is perhaps an example of something with more individual characeter. This wine is positively goloso, complex and yes delicious. As Chile has planted nearer to the coast for a decade now, and continues to open up new areas of fresher reds ... Read More
