According to legend, 120 patriots, exhausted after a long, hard battle during the fight for Chile´s independence, reached the lands belonging to Santa Rita. On that fateful night in1814, these forces of liberty found refuge in the estate cellars. Today, within these same cellars, the award-winning 120 wines are crafted to honour their heroic character.
