Cabo de Hornos , the meeting point of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, inspired the creation of this iconic wine in 1994. Today it forms part of an exclusive group of the five ultra-premium wines of Vina San Pedro, called Grandes Vinos de San Pedro. This wine is an exceptional representation of Cabernet Sauvignon elegantly blended with Syrah and Malbec; all of which are selected from our very best vineyards. Cabo de Hornos is the result of this terroir joined with the precise, meticulous, controlled and dedicated work of winemaker Marco Puyo along with the valuable guidance of our consultant Paul Hobbs.
Founded in year 1865, Vina San Pedro is nowadays one of the largest and oldest exporters of Chilean wine and one of the most important wineries in the country.
San Pedro’s main vineyard, wine cellar and hundred-year-old underground cava cellar are located in Molina, in Curico Valley, 200 Km. south of Santiago. There, San Pedro has one of the largest stretches of vineyards in Latin America, with 1,200 hectares.
Parallelly, San Pedro has over 1,500 planted hectares in Central Valley and in the other main vine-growing valleys in Chile, such as Elqui, Casablanca, San Antonio-Leyda, Maipo, Cachapoal, Maule and Bio-Bio, always in the quest for new and better origins for its wines.
Vina San Pedro is part of the so-called VSPT Wine Group winemaking group, the third largest vitivinicultural group in Chile and the second largest exporter of Chilean wine.
Its portfolio includes the brands Cabo de Hornos, Kankana del Elqui, Tierras Moradas, 1865 Single Vineyard, 1865 Lmited Edition, Castillo de Molina, 35 South and GatoNegro, which enjoy vibrant success in the most competitive markets.
