Wine maker notes
Located between the massive Andes Mountains and the low coastal mountains of the Pacific Ocean, the warm and dry vineyards of El Suspiro, in the Peralillo area of the Colchagua Valley, are world-renowned for producing outstanding red wines with rich color, full body and varietal character. The steep rock soil maintains moisture for the vines during the intense summer heat while the coastal mountains temper the cool maritime influences of the Pacific.

Food pairing
Root: 1 Carmenere pairs well with pasta, vegetable soup, spicy entrees or grilled meats such as beef, lamb or pork. Its unique character makes it the perfect wine to pair with ingredients that are traditionally difficult to match such as garlic, bell peppers, fresh herbs and eggplant.

Producer
Chile”s unique geography makes it one of very few grape-growing regions in the world where original European rootstock has been unaffected by phylloxera. While most vineyards around the world are planted on grafted rootstock, Root:1 grapes are grown on pure, ungrafted roots, producing wines of outstanding quality, with pure fruit flavors and authentic varietal character.
