The 'Tres Palacios' winery is a family business, founded in 1996 by Don Patricio Palacios and his wife, Maria Inés Covarrubias. With patience—and much passion—they began their search for an area that had never before been used for winemaking.

They settled on the Cholqui sector of the Maipo Valley, 16 km (10 miles) from the city of Melipilla. The unique location of the vineyard protects them from extremes of heat and allows the grapes to ripen slowly and completely. In a setting reminiscent of the crater of a volcano, this terroir is unlike any other in Chile’s Central Valley.

This wine has 10 months in French oak barrels and has aging potential for up to 7 years.

An intense purple colour, the nose is intense and attractive with ripe black and red fruits, mixed with spicy notes and touches of chocolate and tobacco. The wine has a rich structure with a thick, yet balanced body and soft velvety tannins that give it great volume and persistence. Best served between 16 to 18 degrees.

Best served with pasta dishes and semi-ripe cheeses.
