Trivento Eolo, another gem in Viña Concha y Toro’s collection, pays homage to the Mendoza region in neighbouring Argentina. Produced with Malbec grapes sourced from the high-altitude vineyards of Luján de Cuyo, this wine embodies the power and intensity of the Andean terroir. With its deep ruby hue, velvety texture, and notes of black fruits and spices, Trivento Eolo showcases the full potential of Argentina’s emblematic grape variety.

Viña Concha y Toro also excels in white wines, and the Amelia Chardonnay is a shining example of its expertise. Grown in the cool-climate of Limarí Valley in Chile, this Chardonnay exudes freshness, elegance and vibrant acidity. Its delicate aromas of tropical fruits and hints of vanilla are beautifully balanced by a refined minerality, making it a delightful choice for white wine enthusiasts.

For lovers of Pinot Noir, Viña Concha y Toro’s Amelia Pinot Noir is a revelation.
