Cordillera Carménère has its origin in the famous Terroir of Peumo in the Cachapoal Valley. The valley is characterized by having a sub-humid Mediterranean climate, and its very warm days and very cold nights influenced by the Cachapoal River allow for a prolonged ripening period ideal for these vines.
The vineyard is on a foothill, on granite soils of colluvial origin with a clay loam texture and the presence of stones, offering very good drainage and low fertility. This is ideal for controlling vigor and obtaining very limited production of an excellent Carménère.
