智利Concha y Toro酒莊以創始人命名的旗艦紅酒Don Melchor,很早就被國際酒評家們視為智利最好的Cabernet Sauvignon紅酒之一。這款紅酒產自智利精華中的精華紅酒產區Maipo Valley的Puente Alto地區,此區葡萄園的土壤主要是含有礫石的沖積土,是古早時期冰河自安地斯山沖刷下來的,排水性非常良好,非常適合種植Cabernet Sauvignon等波爾多系的紅葡萄,園中平均樹齡超過30歲。Don Melchor葡萄園無疑的是智利最棒的葡萄園之一,在1990年代中期Concha y Toro和波爾多頂級酒莊Mouton-Rothschild開始合作釀製Almaviva紅酒,而生產Almaviva所使用的葡萄園事實上就是從Don Melchor葡萄園分出來的,所以Don Melchor紅酒和Almaviva紅酒可以說是系出同源的兄弟,甚至可以說Almaviva是為了Don Melchor而生的。在日本神之雫漫畫中的第22集曾介紹過這支智利佳釀。
