    El Principal

    ‘Calicanto’ Maipo Andes Valley

    Chile, Central Valley, Maipo Andes Valley


    Winery Overview

    Brought to Regal a few years ago by selector Jens Schmidt, El Principal represents a winery from Chile taking Cabernet and Carmenere to an entirely new level. Located in the Alto Maipo, these vineyard sites lie at the foot of the Andes mountains up to 950 meters in altitude. Winds creep over the Andes and cool down these sites late in the afternoon to help preserve remarkable acidity despite the warmth of the Maipo region. Low yields give great concentration and create a unique spiced potpourri aroma on each wine. With the advice of Monsieur Patrick Leon (famed from his work at Chateau Mouton Rothschild) and winemaking expertise of Gonzalo Guzman, these wines will over deliver for a fraction of the price that Napa offers.
