Reviews and Ratings

Luis Pereyra who founded Santa Carolina used to save his best wines for his family, dubbed the Reserva de Familia and kept in his private cellar. Fortunately, times have changed and we can all enjoy this powerful, highly extracted red wine that was aged in oak barrels for 14 months.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
