“I’ve always enjoyed being in contact with nature and the countryside. It’s wonderful being able to combine that with the world of sensations and perceptions that produces such a noble product as wine. Each place has its own expression and embodying that in a bottle involves a journey with a great team of people. This is a world where you work hard and never stop learning.”– Andrea Calderon Vásquez, Head Winemaker at 1865
Cabernet Sauvignon is the emblematic variety of the 1865 wine brand portfolio.
The 1865 Selected Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is made with the best grapes from Viña San Pedro’s vineyard in the Maipo Valley, located on a second terrace of the River Main with thin, stony, well-drained alluvial soil.
