Produced from estate vineyards located across the best appellations to achieve the ultimate expression for each varietal, Root:1 wines are unmatched in quality and taste.

By utilizing sustainable techniques to manage vine growth, provide proper irrigation, and honor the unique attributes of each site, they?re guaranteeing not only the quality of their product but also the longevity and health of the land around us and the community that makes their vineyards possible.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely grown grape in the New World. Cabs from Chile have an elegance and earn great respect due to the complexity and diversity of characteristics, stemming from nuances of what the Chilean landscape gives to the grape. Thick skins lead to classicly high tannins, and strong red and black fruit-forward characteristics on both the nose and palate.
