When choosing the best food for a glass of wine, we often must avoid getting too complicated and looking for elaborate combinations. Sometimes the wisest thing to do is to opt for the simplest.
Since white asparagus have a much milder flavor than green asparagus, they are less herbal, more delicate, and have a softer texture. They pair very well with white wines. If served with a vinaigrette based on olive oil and lemon, a Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc can be an excellent choice, thanks to its citrus and fresh green herbs.
If you are lucky enough to get fresh fish with a mild flavor and delicate white meat, such as sole, take the opportunity to grill it and eat it only with salt and a glass of fresh wine with a coastal influence, such as Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc—a combination where the saying “less is more” is fully accomplished.
Do you know that oysters are the best source of bioavailable Zinc? Zinc is essential for the functioning of our white blood cells, which are our body’s primary detoxification system. This is why raw, freshly opened oysters are one of the purest and healthiest foods you can try. With a splash of lemon juice and a glass of Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, this pair is one of the noblest appetizers around.
In pea season, nothing is tastier than eating them raw, just out of their pods, and enjoying their sweetness. Another option is to prepare a delicious soup to savor the creaminess of this ingredient. It will pair well with citric and herbaceous white wine such as Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc.
We comply with the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and legal responsibility to balance benefit and purpose.

The Gran Reserva vineyards are an important part of the project to conserve native forest areas and protect local biodiversity. Our native forests have the ability to retain rainwater and control the kind of climate change that results from water shortages.
We take care of 1,432 hectares of protected forests and, on average per vineyard, a total of 105 species of fauna and 48 species of registered flora.
Our effort to preserve nature begins with responsible water consumption. 99% of the water we use comes from surface and subterranean sources.
Our vineyards are drip irrigated, which translates to a 90% efficiency on water consumption, and over the past 3 years, we’ve reduced our water footprint by 10%.
All of our winemaking processes require the use of energy. Our choice to invest in clean, renewable energy reflects our desire to co-create a sustainable planet for the future.
100% of the electricity used to make the wines in the Gran Reserva collection come from renewable sources, including solar energy.
Concha y Toro has been certified under the Wines of Chile Sustainability Code since 2012, which means that our vineyards are officially recognized as sustainable vineyards.
The wines in our Gran Reserva collection are crafted entirely from estate-owned grapes in sustainably managed vineyards.
