«SOLO AMIGOS» - this expression can be translated from Spanish «Just friends».
The vineyards of the «Solo Amigos» TM grow surrounded by a picturesque landscape at the foothills of the Andes - in the Central Valley of Chile. Here the grapes get the best they need because of the unique climatic circumstances.
These ideal conditions for ripening the grapes result in the fact that wines become powerful, rounded and balanced.
The wines of the «Solo Amigos» TM are produced at the production facilities of the Wine House «Peter Mertes», which was founded in 1924 and is still a family-type company. With a team of more than 300 persons, this producing firm from their office in Bernkastel-Kues is active in the field of wine business around the world.
The enterprise attracts by its impeccable cleanliness, using thestate-of-the-art technology as well as by the qualityof the wines. Four glass container bottling lines daily produce 1,000,000 bottles. The industrial laboratory equipped with the most up-to-date equipment, is capable to immediately detect the slightest deviation from the specified characteristics. The wine production is strictly controlled: each bottle before it is packed goes electronic testing for identifying the slightest flaws. The entire wine material is carefully selected by experienced tasters, which can be employed only by such a large firm as «Peter Mertes».
