Chile’s unique geography makes it one of very few grape-growing regions in the world where original European rootstock has been unaffected by phylloxera. While most vineyards around the world are planted on grafted rootstock, Root:1 grapes are grown on pure, ungrafted roots, producing wines of outstanding quality, with pure fruit flavors and authentic varietal character.

Root: 1 is located in the Maipo Valley, in the district of San Pedro, an area close to the coast. It was built with efficiency, quality and cutting-edge technology in mind, all of which is exemplified by the winery’s production process. It begins with a gravity-flow system that ensures reception of blemish-free grapes, and continues with the use of sorting tables that transport the fruit to stainless steel fermentation tanks.

Environmental care is also a key objective. Energy conservation is a priority and water used in the winery is recycled for irrigation. In addition, every effort is made to preserve the surrounding native flora and fauna.

This wine shows a deep ruby red color, completmented by aromas of cherries, blueberries, blackberries, black pepper and delicate notes of cassis, toffee and dark chocolate.  The palate opens with abundant fruit-filled flavours including cherries and black fruits. Its silky tannins and good structure create a perfectly-balanced framework for this full-bodied wine with its elegant finish of chocolate covered fruits.
