Winemaker's notes:
Over 100 years ago, the 1st generation of the Silva family pioneered Colchagua Valley, the region today producing Chile's finest premium wines. Today, the 4th and 5th generations fully own and run the winery and its land, making it the most family run estate in the country. The three estates it manages are separated strategically across the valley, allowing different expressions from the varieties it produces. Casa Silva is Chile's most awarded winery at international competitions. Accolades among many others include: the 'Best South American Producer' award at the International Wine and Spirit Competition, London 2000. Casa Silva has stood out for its production of excellent Carmenere, receiving at the end of 2003 the trophy for 'Best Chilean Carmenere' at the First Annual Wines of Chille Awards.
