Vitis Única from Morandé presents a portfolio of traditional varieties from outstanding origins made with non-conventional vinification techniques. Through the selection of specific sectors within each of its terroirs, this line offers wines with tremendous complexity, structure, and elegance.
This Carmenère comes from the San Bernardo vineyard, in the Maipo Valley, one of the most renowned valleys in Chile for its exceptional conditions for growing Bordeaux varieties, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. The great influence of the Andes Mountain, as well as its nutrient-poor alluvial soils, allow it to obtain great elegance and typicity in its wines.
This Vitis Única Carmenère goes through a rather special vinification process for its type, since its fermentation is mainly in French oak foudres, where it acquires greater freshness, acidity and great fruit intensity. This makes it stand out from its peers and stands out for its high quality.

Our winemaker Ricardo Baettig tells a little and tastes about the Gran
Reserva Carmenére wine.
“Winemaking is a trade, an interpretation of the grapes as well as the place they are grown. It requires knowledge, sensitivity, hard work, and patience to finally enjoy a product that dates to the origins of human culture. It is a very rewarding endeavor.”
Maipo is home to Chile’s greatest winemaking tradition. It has a temperate climate with a hot, dry summer. Frosts are rare in the valley, and the rainfall is concentrated between April and September.
Ricardo tells us about what fudres are and their contributions to wine.
