Cabernet Sauvignon is arguably Chile’s top grape, producing rich, ripe wines from world-class vineyards. Veramonte sources Cabernet from the Colchagua Valley, a warmer region more suited to produce fully ripened Cabernet Sauvignon consistently, every year. Extended maceration and French Oak aging develops richness and intensity while softening tannins to create approachable wines upon release.
Opening in 1998, Veramonte is a striking, modern facility designed by one of Chile’s leading architects, Jorge Swinburn. It houses the latest technology in gravity-based fermentors, ultra-modern stainless steel tanks and high efficiency bottling lines. Built for small-lot wine production, the facility ensures individual vineyard blocks can be fermented and aged separately prior to final blending – allowing winemaking to create authentic, vineyard expressive wines.
Veramonte was founded as a vineyard-based winery whose mission is to produce high quality wines that accurately, authentically express varietal characteristics via Chile’s unique terroirs -- the combined environment of soil, topography, climate and people. Our commitment to nurturing the ties of every wine to its soil or ”sense of place” reflects a dedication to produce terroir expressive wines.
