History “More than 100 years ago, Don Melchor de Concha y Toro reserved for himself an exclusive batch of his best wines. To keep strangers away from his private reserve, he spread the rumor that the Devil lived in his cellar.” Hence the name: Casillero del Diablo (The Devil’s Cellar)
Regional Information Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay comes from vineyards located just a few kilometres from the Pacific Ocean. Constant sea breezes moderate the temperatures and result in remarkably fresh wines. The soils in the Limarí Valley lend an elegant mineral touch to the Chardonnay, while Casablanca contributes fruit flavours, such as peaches.
