    Winemaker Notes

    Sweet and toasty, with easy-drinking juicy plum and currant flavors that pick up some nice grip on the finish. A solid little Cab value, from Chile.

    Aresti Winery Video
    In 1951, Vicente Aresti Astica acquired the Bellavista Estate in Curicó, a renowned winegrowing valley, and started building a family tradition of excellence in winemaking with passion at the core of their philosophy. Over half a century of meticulous work resulted in a tradition of high-quality wines that were the labels of choice of the most prestigious wineries at that time. The experience gained in making superior wines fueled Mr. Aresti’s motivation to start bottling and selling labels of their own. In 1999 and following major winery renovations and introduction of state-of-the-art technology, Viña ARESTI took the great leap forward into producing and exporting bottled wine. Aresti Winery is owned byACW, one of the most prestigious family-run wine operations in Chile. Nowadays ACW produces and sells various brands around the world. The foundations of Viña Aresti are the passion for excellence of its founder, Vicente Aresti Astica. After he passed, at 92, his daughters Begoña and Ana María Aresti López took over their father’s endeavor and persevere in the commitment they had learned from him. Viña Aresti, a company of the ACW, one of Chile’s most prestigious family winegrowing businesses, is located in Molina, in the Curicó valley, less than 200 km south of Santiago. New vineyards near the Claro river – Micaela, Peñaflor, and La Reserva – have been added to Bellavista, the original estate. The vineyards are situated in Curicó, Chile’s largest and most famous wine valley. With privileged climate, alluvial soil, a long dry season and a daytime/nighttime temperature differential of some 20ºC, this region offers the ideal conditions for the production of superior wines.

    One of South America’s most important wine-producing countries, Chile is a reliable source of both budget-friendly wines and premium bottlings. 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 some time in the 1550s. But Chile’s modern wine industry is largely the result of heavy investment from the 1990s.

    Long and narrow, Chile is geographically isolated, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east and the Atacama desert to the north. These natural borders allowed Chile to avoid the disastrous phylloxera infestation in the late 1800s and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted (as is the case in much of the wine producing world).

    Chile’s vineyards vary widely in climate and soil type from north to south. The Coquimbo region in the far north contains the Elqui and Limari Valleys, where minimal rainfall and intense sunlight are offset by chilly breezes from the Humboldt Current. While historically focused solely on Pisco production, today this area finds success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Aconcagua region contains the eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry and home to full-bodied red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot—as well as Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley, which focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The Central Valley is home to the Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys, which produce a wide variety of red and white wines. Maipo in particular is known for Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape. In the up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
