History

  • 20 Barrels Limited Edition is Cono Sur's top range of wines, the first vintage was released in 1996, when the winemaking team decided to put aside 20 of the very best barrels of Casablanca Pinot Noir from that year, hence the name. The range has gradually expanded to include other classic grape varieties, when winemaker, Adolfo Hurtado, feels he has found the ideal vineyard to produce the best example fruit possible for each variety.and its gifted wine valleys between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Cono Sur produces wines that are premium and expressive, conveying the spirit of the New World.

Regional Information

  • To the west of Santiago and practically touching Chile's central coast, Casablanca Valley's Mediterranean-cold weather is strongly influenced by the Pacific Ocean and its cold Humboldt current, a chilling agent born at the very Antarctica and whose effects can be felt all along the Chilean coast. Humboldt makes itself present through the fog, cloudiness and cooling breezes that characterize the region and conspire to produce a relatively delayed harvest. Especially suited for whites and Pinot Noir.
