In 1917 a young Pedro Pavone-Voglino left his homeland in Italy’s Piamonte wine region and embarked upon the long journey to the New World. His pioneering spirit led him to Chile and allowed him to come to know the beauty and benefits of the Maipo Valley. Pavone Family Captivated by the area’s landscape and its particular qualities for wine production, he decided to settle there and acquired the land that is now Viña Santa Ema in 1931. He began producing grapes for vinification, which, due to their quality were sold to well-known Chilean wineries. He married Marta Arbea Perrot in the small town of Isla de Maipo, where their children and descendents still live today. In 1956, ‘Don’ Pedro and his oldest son, Félix Pavone-Arbea, began making and marketing bottled wines that soon earned recognition by the industry and consumers alike. Félix Pavone continued the work of his father, married Catalina Moreno, settled into the family home in Isla de Maipo and had Read more »

  • Santa Ema Camernere Reserve Barrel Select 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Intensely aromatic with oak and vanilla notes competing with assertive vegetal, herbal dried tomato aromas. There's some low wild berry and currant fruit here as well but this is not fruit driven, though it is very complex. Soft and broad in the mouth, this has lovely red cherry and plum fruit framed by gentle herbal and spice notes in a decide... Read More

    Wine review by mjcarroll22


  • Santa Ema Cabernet Amplus 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Dark ruby in color, with an intense nose of blackberries and a touch of cocoa. A bold concentrated wine, with a powerful mouth feel, good tannic structure and a lovely freshness; it shows layers of ripe black fruit (blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant) , a touch of dark chocolate and some kitchen herbs in the persistent finish.

    Wine review by dgmcurious


  • Santa Ema Reserve Merlot 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly herbal and minty on the nose with light, fresh aromas of toast, licorice and plum preserves with a wild cherry top note. This is exceptionally well balanced in the mouth, virtually seamless with ripe tannins and acidity that is delicately woven into the fabric of this wine. The fruit is ripe and rich but remains fresh with flavors of plu... Read More
