Wine Guide
Aconcagua Valley
Long thought to be too hot for wine production, Aconcagua is now one of Chile’s leading regions. This is largely thanks to Don Maximiano Errazuriz, a visionary wine pioneer planted the first vine cuttings here, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah all finding homes in the distinctive microclimate. Aconcagua is also home to the majestic, bold and elegant Sena, the award-winning joint venture between Robert Mondavi and Vina Errazuriz that came second in the Berlin blind tastings of 2004, beating many French Premiers Crus.
