Camino de Chile Merlot

The grapes come from vineyards located in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago, in Maule Valley. This place has a Mediterranean-like climate, with mild winters and dry summers, with marked range of temperatures between day and night.
This allows the grapes to get ripe tannins, as well as excellent aromas and color concentration. Soils are a combination of sand and volcanic ash and the flat terrain gets and superb sunlight exposition. Yields are carefully controlled to produce concentrated wines, excellent quality and elegance.
Camino del Chile indicates the direction of Bodegas De Aguirre, today known as VDA, Viña de Aguirre, from their origins and their ancestors towards excellence.
Classified as AA Company under the BRC Global Standards Quality Program.
