The Romans (who else?) introduced César Noir to France and the variety has existed in Colchagua since 1912, despite rumours of extinction. It is from these vineyards that the grapes for this intriguing and unique wine are sourced. It's a wine that develops beautifully in the glass with an intense, silky texture and notes of fig, leather and rich ripe black fruit.
In 1997, Mario Pablo Silva made a proposal to his father: he wanted to transform his bulk wine business which had been owned by the Silva family since 1892 into a prestige bottling company for export, bearing the family's own name. Mario Silva accepted his son's challenge and Casa Silva was created. In a short space of time, Casa Silva has become one of the most prestigious and awarded producers of premium Chilean wine. They have a pioneering spirit and own enviable vineyard sites throughout the Colchagua region which they match up to individual grape varieties.
