Viña Carmen was founded in 1850 by Christian Lanz, who named the winery in honour to his beloved wife Carmen. More than a century later, in 1987, the Claro Group acquired the brand to take it into a new direction. In 1992 a new winery was built and new vineyards were planted, to produce the best quality wines from Chile, and export them worldwide. Carmen has been recognised for its quality and for being a pioneer in the Chilean wine industry. As an example, the Carmenére grape was discovered amongst Carmen vineyards. Additionally the winery has been the leader producer of wines from organically grown grapes through its Nativa brand. Today, Viña Carmen is one of the most important Chilean wineries in the premium wine segment. It exports to more than 50 countries, which represents 94% of the total production. – Description from iskicm
