The sun-drenched Maipo Valley is home to world-renowned Cabernet Sauvignon with rich color and full body. Tradition meets modernity here in the home of Chilean viticulture.
Location of Vineyard
Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere flourish in the warm, dry, sun-drenched Maipo and Colchagua Valleys, respectively. Located between the massive Andes Mountains and Pacific’s low Coastal Mountains, these valleys are world-renowned for producing outstanding red wines with rich color, full body, and the true varietal character that Root:1 is known for.
The cooler coastal vineyards of Casablanca are perfectly suited for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Maritime breezes keep temperatures cool, while daytime sun encourages a lengthy growing season.
Chile’s optimal climate allows for sustainable practices in the vineyard, but its geography is what truly makes this country unique. Chile’s isolation, protected by the Andes Mountains to the east and the cool Pacific Ocean to the west, has allowed it to remain one of the few regions in the world where ungrafted European rootstock survived, unaffected by Phylloxera.
