Primus: Setting the Standard

http://primuswines.cl/english

Primus is a leading brand in the Chilean premium segment and a preeminent demonstration of Chilean quality capabilities.

Inspired by the magnificent and rugged surroundings of the Andes, Primus produces elegant red wines of uncompromising quality that showcase the best expression of terroir from the most renowned winemaking areas in Chile.  Primus is about creating red wines that always deliver on quality based on the understanding of the soils from which they come.  Primus produced the first meritage-style blend from Chile.

The vineyards, planted with Carmenère, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are located in the Marchigue, sub-region of the Colchagua Valley and Maipo Valley, well-known for producing high quality red wine grapes.  Its warm climate is moderated by two mountain ranges stretching north to south along the valley.  The climate combines with well drained soils of clay-loam and rocky materials to offer ideal growing conditions for varietals such as Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon.

All farming practices are organic.
