Unlocking the Secrets of Chile

Jermaine Stone, Founder/CEO, Cru Luv Wine

Casillero del Diablo is Chile’s leading winery. Named for the “Devil’s Cellar,” where coveted wines were fiercely protected in the 19th Century, Casillero del Diablo was founded in the heart of Chile’s famed Maipo Valley in 1966. Casillero del Diablo crafts award-winning wines that evoke Chile’s extraordinary wine regions, shouldered between the rugged terrain of the Andes Mountains and the foggy coastline of the Pacific Ocean. In 2020, this dynamic estate was named New World Winery of the Year at the Wine Star Awards.

In this four-part series hosted by Jermaine Stone, founder of Cru Love Wine, host of The Original Wine and Hip Hop podcast, and a 2020 Wine Enthusiast 40 Under 40 Tastemaker, we explore the intriguing history behind Casillero del Diablo, including its legendary cellar. The show also takes an in-depth look at Chile’s diverse regions and grape varieties with winemaker Sebastián Rodríguez. And with summer right around the corner, seasonal entertaining ideas, from food pairings to wine cocktails, will have you warm-weather ready.
