Elegant dry red wine "Santa Hortensia" Carmenere-Cabernet Sauvignon is made from Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the heart of the New World - the Central Valley of Chile. Rainy winters and dry summers, with sharp fluctuations in day and night temperatures, allow ripened tannins, excellent aroma and optimal color concentration to be obtained. Soils are sandy and sandy-loamy. Harvested when the berries reach optimum ripeness. Vinification takes place by the traditional method used for red grape varieties, followed by maceration on the skin at a controlled temperature. The berries are delicately pressed in such a way as to preserve the anthocyanins, which affect the color saturation.

The ruler "Viento del Sur" is dedicated to the southern wind, without which neither a good harvest nor a good wine will turn out. The Greek gods, deifying the phenomena of nature, appropriated winds to names in accordance with their directions. The southern wind of Noto (in Latin - Oster) brings good weather, saturates the nature with wind energy in summer and during harvest.
