San Pedro

Viña San Pedro’s origins date back to 1865 when brothers Bonifacio and José Gregorio Correa Albano acquired pieces of land formerly owned by their ancestors. These two 5th generation family members began to produce their first San Pedro wines with local grape varieties which were later replaced by more internationally recognized varieties from Southern France and Germany throughout the Curico Valley. San Pedro Vineyards cover over 3,700 acres in the Central Valley as well as Elqui, Casablanca, San Antonio-Leyda, Maipo, Cachapoal, Maule and Bío-Bío. The San Pedro portfolio includes the several brands including Castillo de Molina and GatoNegro. GatoNegro was born in 1960 and Castillo de Molina was launched around 1980 both of which have experienced success in the international market recognized as quality value brands according to our San Pedro reviews. In 2011 Vina San Pedro was awarded New World Winery of the Year at the Wine Enthusiast Wine Star Awards. For more information on these wines be sure to check out our San Pedro wine ratings below.

San Pedro 2010 1865 Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc (Leyda Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $19

In the four years that San Pedro has been making this SB, it has improved steadily. This is pungent, strong and piercing, with sharpness that comes up just shy of being too much. Spritzy in feel, with lime, fresh lettuce and tarragon flavors. Sheer, long and tangy on the finish; excellent Leyda SB.

San Pedro 2001 Cabo de Hornos Cabernet Sauvignon (Lontué Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $35

Smells lovely, with cedar, tea and cassis mingling effortlessly on the nose. In the mouth, it’s bigger and fleshier than the ’99 or ’00, with a long finish filled with sweet fruit.

San Pedro 1999 Cabo de Hornos Cabernet Sauvignon (Lontué Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $35

Harvested from dry-farmed vines 50 years old or more, rigorously selected on the sorting table, fermented after a short cold maceration, then put into French oak for 18 months and aged in bottle for a year before release, this wine gets coddled from start to finish. The results speak for themselves: floral, leather and dried fruit aromas; flavors of cedar, cassis…
