Santa Carolina is part of Carolina Wine Brands, one of the leading and oldest wineries in Chile, with a history spanning over 140 years. As Carolina Wine Brands’ flagship brand, Vina Santa Carolina has strong international presence around the world offering excellent quality and a wide portfolio; currently, we distribute the Estrella and Carolina Reserva lines.
Santa Carolina’s Estrellas are varietal wines of consistent quality and lively character sourced from Rapel, one of the finest wine valleys in the Central region of Chile, where varied microclimates and diverse soil types make it especially apt for a number of grape varieties.
Carolina Reserva, a renewed line of wines born from the vineyards of Chile’s best winegrowing valleys is inspired by Carolina Iniguez, the wife of the winery’s founder Luis Pereira. Carolina was a woman who knew how to enjoy life and to turn even the simplest of moments into a grand one. This wine is born out of that inspiration. The perfect wine to enjoy every day to experience a more elegant Chilean style.
