Growing Region: San Antonio Valley, Chile
Early morning fog rolls through the vineyard. Later lifted by gentle sea breezes. You can smell the cold waters of the Pacific. El Rosario, an enclosed valley of 22,000 acres. Have we found the fabled El Dorado? Possibly. “Wine, smooth as a golden sword,” writes the Nobel poet Pablo Neruda. Here, in this enchanted place, you can believe it. Ideal granitic soil, temperatures, rainfall, philosophy, vision, and pioneering spirit. Sometimes, the stars and the ingredients align.
