Carménère Grape Variety


Originally planted in Bordeaux as a blending grape, it had eventually fell out of favor in the late 1800s and found its way to the more conduce growing climate in Chile. Carménère has since been rediscovered in Chile as a leading red grape capable of stand-alone single varietal wines or blended with international varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon.
