In 1978, Alberto del Pedregal Aldunate brought Carta Vieja to life, the first family brand. It has a long tradition that extends over 42 years. With time, it’s known how to reinvent itself, always maintaining itself as one of the leading wines of Viña del Pedregal.
Stories come true as long as there’s someone to believe in them. Carta Vieja was one person’s mission, which grew and became stronger over time. The following generations took it upon themselves to carry it out.
Bright yellow colour. Deep aromatic impression, with a develop of white peaches, banana, lychee and a delicate citric note, mixed with soft roasted hazelnut and vanilla aromas. Wide and generous on the palate, with a good acidity balance that make the fruit more present, along with an agreeable roasted note of its aging in barrels. Persistent and elegant finish.

Alberto del Pedregal Aldunate, part of the sixth generation of the family, materialized years of experience into our first world-class wine. He left behind artisan production to raise industry standards, positioning the winery as one of the most renowned in Chile. It’s said that his father, before dying, left him a letter with the details of how he envisioned this wine. That document, which unfortunately was destroyed in a fire at the manor house, gave name to our first wine: Carta Vieja.
