Matorral Chileno

Mezcla Tinta

Carmen DO begins with a simple idea, with a dream of strengthening ties with special, unique producers in different parts of Chile. Working side-by-side, we have created a different wine that uses manual production in its aim to transmit the history of a lifetime tied to the vineyard. And this lets us bring Chile’s valleys and its people to light.
