About Viña Undurraga

The winery was established in the heart of the Maipo region in Santa Ana Estate, 34 kilometres from Santiago de Chile, and is one of the oldest wineries in Chile. Viña Undurraga was the first Chilean winery to export wines to the US market in 1903. Their wine won its first international award as early as 1910 and still bagging important awards to date. Rafael Urrejola, the head winemaker of Viña Undurraga is one of Chile’s brightest young winemakers, who is also responsible for the “Terroir Hunter” range. The state-of-the-art winemaking cellars have a whopping capacity of 20 million-litre. The cool underground cellars built during Undurraga’s beginning years in the nineteenth century are used to age their Reserva wines, preserving the wine in ideal conditions and also bonds wines with the old tradition.

About Medium Red

Medium red wines can be called “food wines.” They offer up tons of flavor with a balance of zesty acidity which makes them match with a wide variety of foods (from zesty salads to rich and cheesy lasagna). These are the perfect mid-week wines for red wine lovers.

There are many varieties that span the mid-weight red wine category so, to name a few familiar ones, check out Grenache, Sangiovese, Merlot, Zinfandel, Montepulciano, Cabernet Franc and Barbera.
