Santa Macarena are outstanding single-vineyard wines sourced from one of the most coastal vineyards in Chile, situated in the Leyda region just south of the port of San Antonio.
Vines were planted on the advice of top Viticulturalist, Pedro Parra, in the 1990s on a single slope just 5 km from the ocean and 55 miles west of central Santiago.
The morning mists and spring frosts, often associated with the Napa Valley and Bordeaux are brought from
the west coast by the Humboldt current.
This cool, marginal climate makes for challenging growing conditions but the results are well worth all the effort.
