Santa Rita was founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernández Concha. Considerable wealth from mining in the Atacama desert was flowing into Santiago at the time and a wine industry sprang up just south of the city.

Santa Rita, along with its contempories Cousiño Macul and Concha Y Toro, introduced vines from France and began to make wine.

Today, Santa Rita has five wineries across Chile with the combined capacity to produce and store nearly 90 million liters of wine. The company’s diversity of vineyards means a diverse portfolio.

For instance, Santa Rita’s vineyards in the Limari Valley are planted on alluvial soils and there is a warm Mediterranean climate, so Chardonnay, Carmenère and Syrah do well. However, in Leyda Valley, the fine clay soils and the cooler climate are better suited to Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.

Santa Rita’s flagship wine is the Casa Real, a Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from vineyards surrounding the Maipo estate. It is aged for 14 months in new French and American oak before release, and can be happily cellared for a decade or so.

Another key wine is the Bougainville Petite Sirah, a premium red made from a grape variety not usually seen in Chile.

Other notable wines in the Santa Rita portfolio include the Reserva range, the Medalla Real range, and the entry-level 120 range.

 

Taste:

120 Cabernet Sauvignon is an intense purplish red in color, fruity aromas on the nose reminiscent of ripe red fruits such as cherry with hints of vanilla and tobacco coming from contact with oak. In the palate we find sweet and elegant tannins leaving a juicy and fresh finish.
