Santa Carolina wines are an accurate reflection of their love for the land, respect for traditions, and constant search for new production methods that allow them to remain a contemporary player and at the same time adapt to an ever-changing ecosystem. Innovation is then endemic, which is also why they are constantly evolving and seeking improvements. They have put enormous efforts and significant resources into R&D projects like Luis Pereira, their icon wine sourced from ancient vines that embodies the seamless fusion of past and present due to its vinification method; Bloque Herencia, a project aimed to recover pre-phylloxera vine material to analyze its behavior in different environments; and Chacra Centenario, a garden with several century-old traceable wine grapevines.
