Santa Rita Casa Real Cabernet Sauvignon

“Casa Real has emerged from hidden gem to greater fame in the world of fine Cabernets. Such a progression has been a result of sustained critical acclaim, repeated trade tastings, and, since the 2018 vintage, better global distribution, thanks to its listing on La Place de Bordeaux”– The Drinks Business

Founded in 1880 in the Maipo Valley of Chile, Santa Rita’s “Casa Real” Reserva Especial is steeped in romantic 19th century heritage and modern wine ambitions.  

Casa Real is the peak of one of Chile’s most venerable wine estates, with a fascinating history, reputation and consistency. It is culmination of Ricardo Claro’s dream to create a faithful exponent of the best terroir in Chile for Cabernet Sauvignon, able to stand side-by-side with the best wines of the world.

About Santa Rita

Viña Santa Rita’s story begins in 1880 with the visionary founder Don Domingo Fernández Concha, a prominent businessman and public figure of his time. Don Domingo’s pioneering spirit led him to introduce the finest French grape varieties to the rich soils of the Maipo Valley, along with state-of-the-art equipment and a team of skilled French winemakers. This infusion of talent and innovation brought previously unknown techniques to Chile, revolutionising winemaking in the country and producing truly outstanding results.

About Casa Real

First vintaged in 1989, Casa Real Reserva Especial Cabernet Sauvignon represents the pinnacle of winemaking expression and terroir in the Alto Jahuel area of the Maipo Valley. Over three decades of refinements in the vineyard and winery have led to the development of timeless style based on respect, heritage and ambition. The limited release Casa Real Reserva Especial also reflects over 30 years commitment to advanced technology, precision vineyard management and sustainable practices. It is Viña Santa Rita’s flagship wine, highlighting the exquisite balance between nature and nurture.

In 2017, Sebastian Labbé joined Viña Santa Rita as the winemaker for their highly-regarded ‘ultra premium’ range, following his success as head winemaker at sister property Viña Carmen. Labbé was recently recognised in The Drinks Business as one of the 100 Best Winemakers in the world.
