Located between the massive Andes Mountains and the low coastal mountains of the Pacific Ocean, the warm and dry vineyards of El Suspiro are world-renowned for producing outstanding red wines with rich color, full body and varietal character. The steep rock soil maintains moisture for the vines during the intense summer heat while the coastal mountains temper the cool maritime influences of the Pacific.
The vineyards of the Maipo valley extend from the city of Santiago to the west where they meet the cool coast. Known for their distinctive renditions of well-balanced reds, the warmth of the sun and oscillating winds from the Andes provides ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Root: 1 is particularly notable for its elegant, lush, and ripe fruit flavors.
