Winemaker Notes

Violet red in color with aromas of spiced blackberry and plum; hints of black pepper and tobacco. On the palate it is full bodied with delicate tannins.

James Suckling
A ripe but well crafted carmenere with a slew of blueberry and blackberry aromas, plus delicate spicy and smoky notes. Medium to full body and elegant tannins that carry the long finish. Drink or hold

1865 Winery Video

1865 is the founding year of the Viña San Pedro, one of the oldest wineries in Chile. To honor this, Viña San Pedro creates 1865, a wine of exceptional quality driven by the careful selection of varieties from vineyards of the most recognized origins.

Viña San Pedro was founded in 1865 by the Correa Albano brothers in the Curicó Valley. Its long history of over 150 years has allowed San Pedro to become one of the most important wineries in Chile, and a key global player with presence in over 80 countries. 1865 shows exceptional wine quality of varieties from vineyards located in the most recognized origins. With vineyards in the north and in the south, in the coast and in the Andes piedmont, and even in Argentina, 1865 focuses on bringing the best expression in each wine variety.

Dramatic geographic and climatic changes from west to east make Chile an exciting frontier for wines of all styles. Chile’s entire western border is Pacific coastline, its center is composed of warm valleys and on its eastern border, are the soaring Andes Mountains.

Chile’s central valleys, sheltered by the costal ranges, and in some parts climbing the eastern slopes of the Andes, remain relatively warm and dry. The conditions are ideal for producing concentrated, full-bodied, aromatic reds rich in black and red fruits. The eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry—is home to intense red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.

The Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys specialize in Cabernet and Bordeaux Blends as well as Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape.

Chilly breezes from the Antarctic Humboldt Current allow the coastal regions of Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley to focus on the cool climate loving varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Chile’s Coquimbo region in the far north, containing the Elqui and Limari Valleys, historically focused solely on Pisco production. But here the minimal rainfall, intense sunlight and chilly ocean breezes allow success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata in the south make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Spanish settlers, Juan Jufre and Diego Garcia de Cáceres, most likely brought Vitis vinifera (Europe’s wine producing vine species) to the Central Valley of Chile sometime in the 1550s. One fun fact about Chile is that its natural geographical borders have allowed it to avoid phylloxera and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
