Description

Viña Carmen was founded by Christian Lanz in 1850 and named in honor of his beloved wife. Chile had become an independent country by the mid-19th century and as such began to look at the wine industry as an important, export-based business opportunity. The rediscovery of Carmenere in one of the Carmen vineyards, specifically in the Alto Maipo Valley was a landmark event that took this variety, long thought extinct after being infected with phylloxera in the mid-19th century, and returned it to the world’s wine heritage. In 1994 Carmen became the first winery in Chile to create an organic and sustainable line: Nativa.

The winery now has more than 160 years of history marked by milestones and successes earned through its experience, enological heritage, and tireless search for quality and excellence.

TASTING NOTES

A very fine chardonnay with a complex bouquet of fruits, wood, vanilla, and butter; pleasant in the mouth, with great body and length.

FOOD PAIRING

Pairs well with most pork, salmon, tuna, poultry and vegetarian dishes
