Casillero del Diablo

"The beautiful vineyards of Casillero del Diablo are home to some of the finest wines in the world. But few outsiders know the dark secret that lies beneath them. For the locals say that in the depths of the cellar lives the Devil himself. A tale so infamous, they named the wine Casillero del Diablo, the Devil’s Cellar."
I'm a big fan of Concha y Toro wines; their Gran Reserva Serie Riberas were some of my favorites I've tasted in the last six months or so, sorry to see them leave our "cellar." When I was offered a chance to get some tasting samples of their Casillero del Diablo line, I didn't hesitate.

Casillero del Diablo Wines

Founded in 1883, Concha y Toro's aim is to be a leading global branded wine company, with a portfolio of wines and wine partnerships. A successful history of nearly 130 years, plus a deep dedication by the winery and constant research, provides internationally praised wines from a diversity of soils and climates. The Wine Tourist Center of Concha y Toro is the principal winemaking attraction of Santiago. It’s located in Pirque in the Maipo Valley, so a visit there one day surely is on order.
