Luis Miguel – Music and Wine

After a three-year collaboration, countless vineyard visits, an exclusive barrel selection and intense sessions to find the right blend, Latin American superstar Luis Miguel and Viña Ventisquero’s winemaker Aurelio Montes del Campi unveiled an exciting Chilean wine called “ÚNICO Luis Miguel”.

The 2003 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon was first presented to the public in 2005 at a press conference in the Viña Ventisquero cellars in Rancagua, Chile. The first vintage was immediately sold out in Chile and Mexico. This rush reflected Luis Miguel’s popularity and reinforced the consumer attitude that ÚNICO was of outstanding value.

“When you drink ÚNICO you will see that our efforts paid off”, said Luis Miguel recently, “it is a multi-faceted, enticing wine, that’s really great.”

The Gran Reserva Cabernet grows in the coastal zone of the Maipo Valley, a region known for its elegant, excellent quality wines.

The grapes were hand-picked to create an inviting, velvety smooth and full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon.

Maipo Valley, Chile

Located in the sub-region of Maipo, the winery was established as recently as 1998. Its owners, the Gonzalo Vial family, have the ambition of producing remarkable wines that are immediately recognisable. After the first wines were bottled in 2000, nothing stands in the way of achieving this goal. Viña Ventisquero owns vineyards in several different wine regions, each with conditions that give the cultivated vines their particular characters. This maipo winery’s success story started with 420 hectares of close by vineyards. There, some Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are grown, but the red varieties clearly dominate. In addition to the main variety Cabernet Sauvignon, we find Syrah, Merlot and Carmenere. The grapes for the winery’s premium wines, however, come from the small sub-region of Apalta in the classic Colchagua red wine region. On 65 hectares, Viña Ventisquero cultivates its exclusive red varieties here, which develop lush fruity aromas on the region’s fertile alluvial soils. The vineyards in the cooler Casablanca Valley, northwest of the provincial capital Santiago, conversely, are perfect for the white varieties. The more temperate climate even allows the demanding red Burgundy variety Pinot Noir on a few hectares here.
