Viña Santa Carolina was founded by Luis Pereyra Cotapos. He named the winery after his wife, Carolina Iñiguez. He hired a French winemaker – Germain Bachelet – in order to make top quality wines from Chile.
Santa Carolina is part of Carolina Wine Brands, one of the leading wine groups in Chile, which belongs to the Watt’s S.A. agribusiness group owned by the Larraín family. With a history spanning over 140 years, Santa Carolina is one of the oldest wineries in Chile.
