Founded in 1935, the winery’s long history has been guided by the family’s love of the trade and its unending commitment to excellence and the quality of their wines.
Viu Manent wines are made with grapes from their own properties in the *Colchagua Valley in Chile’s Central Zone, 130 km (80 mi) southeast of the capital, Santiago. The winery’s 254 hectares (627 acres) are divided among vineyards in San Carlos, La Capilla, and El Olivar.
Dark purple in color. The nose presents aromas of ripe cherries, black pepper, and blackberries along with fine herbs and a light note of blonde tobacco. The palate is ample and balanced with tremendous structure and rounded tannins. The finish is velvety and very pleasing.
Purplish cherry-red in color with pronounced aromas of fresh red fruits, berries, blackcurrants, red currants, and a slightly spicy note characteristic of a cold vintage. The palate is vibrant and tense, but also has a smooth, gentle texture that leads to a delicate lingering finish.
Light greenish-yellow in color. The intense, complex nose offers aromas of white fruits, asparagus, and pineapple, along with light floral notes and saline touch characteristic of the coastal influence in the vineyard. The palate is fresh, fruity, mineral, and expressive with tremendous volume and a persistent, round finish.
