Our Wines Grandes Vinos de San Pedro

Kankana del Elqui

Kankana del Elqui is a small production Syrah from the Elqui Valley that forms part of an exclusive group of the five ultra-premium wines of Viña San Pedro, called Grandes Vinos de San Pedro. The origin of this truly unique Syrah is a 6 hectare vineyard planted on riverbed soils, located just 20 km from the Pacific Ocean. Here the climate is cool and breezy with cloudy mornings and sunny afternoons. Kankana del Elqui is the result of this terroir joined with the precise, meticulous, controlled and dedicated work of winemaker Gonzalo Castro.
