NF_VentisqueroWineWines from Chile still offer high quality at a very reasonable cost. Example: this cabernet sauvignon showing aromas and flavors of raspberry, cassis, blackberry, mocha, tobacco and dried herbs. It is full on the palate, with savory acidity and tannins that have mellowed with a few years in the bottle. Try it with a sausage pizza or a grilled steak.

The Ventisquero winery was established in 2000. The winemaking team, headed by Felipe Tosso, has international experience. The company has vineyards in different areas of north central Chile, from the Pacific coast to the foothills of the Andes, to take advantage of different growing conditions. This gives them a broad range of flavors to play with when blending wines.
