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.
An officially recognized sub-zone in the southern part of the San Antonio Valley, the Leyda Valley was the original settlement of the wine pioneers who came to the area in the 1990s. They were in search of cooler and wetter growing conditions—as compared to more eastern, drier and often warmer locations.
Planting, which began only in the late 1990s, focused on Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot noir and some limited spots for Syrah. The area continues to receive well-earned accolades for wines of these varieties.
