Gran reserva serie riberas
Gran Reserva Serie Riberas, or “Riverbank Series,” is a family of specific-origin, single-vineyard wines, in which each variety is grown in close proximity to one of Chile’s major rivers – the Rapel, Cachapoal and the Tinguiririca. Each vineyard location was chosen, not only for its suitability to each varietal, but also because each riverbank site possesses naturally elevated levels of protection from the threats of global warming due to the cooling effects of mountain and ocean breezes that flow through the river corridors.
With Gran Reserva, Concha y Toro offers consumers a line of New World wines with the quality, tradition, and the assurance that few Chilean wines can deliver due to the backing of the consistent quality of Concha y Toro’s portfolio, at an affordable price point – an affordable luxury in the current economy: “World-Class Wines within Reach”.
