Ventisquero began making wine in 2000. Today, the winery is led by a young, creative team of entrepreneurs who guide us to a single purpose: creating distinctive, high quality wines. They look for innovative ways to communicate with their target audience and to market our products around the world. Under the guidance of head winemaker Felipe Tosso, the winery was built in the Coastal Maipo Valley, where grapes for their first wines were produced. Three years later, they ventured into the Casablanca Valley and the prestigious Apalta Valley, the source today for Vina Ventisquero’s premium wines. With estate-owned vineyards in Chile’s top wine producing areas – Coastal Maipo, Casablanca, Leyda and Colchagua – and extensive research to uncover the secrets of the country’s unique terroir, Vina Ventisquero seeks to produce wines of the highest quality and consistency.

Tasting notes:


Enclave is deep, dark red in colour. The nose reveals red fruit such as plums and cherries, a touch of cassis, white pepper, damp earth and a hint of black fruit. It has an intriguing aromatic complexity. Elegant and well-structured on the palate with firm, yet silky tannins. Persistent in the finish. This blend has layers of flavours. The firm tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot intermingle with the softness and complexity of Carménère and the elegance of Cabernet Franc. Its blend means that Enclave can be cellared for 10 to 15 years. Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit verdot, 5% Carmenere, 2% Cabernet Franc

93W&S. The 2012 Enclave Cabernet Sauvignon is Ventisquero’s top of the range, a blend with a pinch of Carménère (5%), Petit Verdot (3%) and Cabernet Franc (2%) from two vineyards in Pirque in the Alto Maipo; situated at some 9000 meters altitude, this is a fresher zone in Maipo, which compensated the heat of the vintage. It had a classical vinification with a post fermentation maceration of three to five weeks with malolactic in barrel and an élevage of 18 months. The nose is classical and quite complex for such an early age, with aromas of tobacco, earth, cigar box and blackberries. The tannic structure is quite large and the telltale Cabernet tannins are there, with a dusty texture, a little rustic with good freshness. Powerful red for powerful food that would welcome some time in bottle.
