Kankana del Elqui is an elegant cool-climate Syrah cultivated on the Elqui riverbank. It is crafted using a selection of grapes from the “Solar n°10” vineyard plot.
Given the east-west orientation of the vineyard, absence of mountains between the ocean and the plantations, and strong coastal winds, the humidity of the morning camanchaca mist dries up. This allows the vines to incline towards the east.
Founded in 1865, Viña San Pedro is today one of the largest and oldest exporters of Chilean wine and one of the most important wineries in the country.
The main vineyard, the winery and the centenary underground pit of San Pedro are located in Molina, in the Curicó Valley, 200 km south of Santiago. Here, it has one of the most extensive vineyards in Latin America, with 1,200 hectares.
Its portfolio includes the brands Altaïr, Sideral, Cabo de Hornos, Kankana del Elqui, Tierras Moradas, 1865, Castillo de Molina, GatoNegro 9 Lives, which enjoy a vibrant success in the most competitive markets.
