In honour of Seña’s recent 98-point score, the highest ever achieved by a Chilean wine, its President & Co- Founder Eduardo Chadwick took it to the top of Ojos del Salado, Chile’s highest peak.
Eduardo Chadwick and an international team of climbers with ties to the wine world reached the top of the 6,850-meter Ojos del Salado. Located about 100 miles north of Aconcagua, Ojos del Salado is the highest active volcano in the world and also the second highest mountain in both the Western and Southern Hemispheres. The challenge was to reach the top with a bottle of 2012 Seña to celebrate the 98 points recently awarded by James Suckling.
