    Chilean winemaker Don Melchor de Concha y Toro was terrified that strangers would get their dirty mits on some of the most treasured wines in his cellar. So he spread a rumour. A rumour that the devil lived there. Casillero del Diablo – Cellar of the Devil!

    Mind you, if the devil did live there he’d be waving his pitchfork around in joy. These wines never fail to over deliver for the money and that includes this Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Carmenere. It’s consistently one of our favourite value for money South American reds over the years.

    Feeling like branching out and trying something new? Well quality Carmenere (pronounced car-men-yare) at this price is the way to go! Few do it better than Chile, it’s their signature grape.

    A member of the Cabernet grape family, Carmenere gets its name from the French word for ‘Crimson’. And there’s a reason for that. She’s a big, dark red fruited number that’s medium bodied, rich and quite frankly will go an absolute treat with your favourite barbie slabs of meat. We’re talking steaks, pork, grilled lamb and game meats.
