Winemaker Notes

Deep cherry red with violet hues. The nose reveals black fruit, such as blackberries, blueberries and black cherries intermingled with notes of pepper and spices, as well as damp earth and even mineral notes, like graphite. In the mouth, this wine has vibrant body and is very fresh and tense. It is smooth on entry, with firm, velvety tannin and fresh acidity, which makes for a long, persistent finish.

This wine is excellent with game, such as venison and boar.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
A tight, focused red with fresh-plum and chocolate character. Medium body, firm and creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Grey Carmenere was produced with grapes from Alto Maipo, close to the coast, and in the warm 2017 vintage, they harvested the grapes quite early (it was also a dry year). The wine comes through as elegant and balanced, without any herbal/green aromas. The vines are now 20 years old and have reached a good balance. This is an unusual plot, with layers of small stones, and the behavior of the plants is different from other parts of the vineyard. This has good ripeness and keeps the acidity. It's tasty, long and serious, with a dry finish.

Vina Ventisquero Winery Video

Ventisquero began making wine in 2000. Today, the winery is led by a young, creative team of entrepreneurs who guide us to a single purpose: creating distinctive, high quality wines. They look for innovative ways to communicate with their target audience and to market our products around the world.

Under the guidance of head winemaker Felipe Tosso, the winery was built in the Coastal Maipo Valley, where grapes for their first wines were produced. Three years later, they ventured into the Casablanca Valley and the prestigious Apalta Valley, the source today for Vina Ventisquero's premium wines.

With estate-owned vineyards in Chile's top wine producing areas – Coastal Maipo, Casablanca, Leyda and Colchagua – and extensive research to uncover the secrets of the country's unique terroir, Vina Ventisquero seeks to produce wines of the highest quality and consistency.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

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.
